18.2 Subject to Scrutiny Procedure Rule 16.4, all executive and non-executive decisions, whether made by the Cabinet, Leader of the Council, a Cabinet Member or an Officer under delegated powers and whether implemented or not, may be reviewed and scrutinised by the relevant Scrutiny Committee which may then report on such review and scrutiny to the Cabinet or, in exceptional circumstances (which shall be determined by the committee and recorded in the minutes), to the full Council. For the avoidance of doubt, review and scrutiny in accordance with this Scrutiny Procedure Rule 18.2 shall not be affected by the Call-In Procedure Rules or affect implementation of any decision.
