Call-ins

When a decision is made by the cabinet there is a period of five working days where a request to call in the decision may be initiated.

Call-in should only be used in exceptional circumstances, where members have evidence which suggests that a decision was not taken in accordance with the principals of decision making (as set out in the constitution).
