To hear and determine appeals brought by the Head of Paid Service, the S.151 Officer and the Monitoring Officer against any decisions made by the Investigation and Disciplinary Sub-Committee to take disciplinary action short of dismissal.


The Disciplinary Appeals Sub-Committee will be formed from half of the members of the General Purposes Committee. This is subject to compliance with the requirements regarding political proportionality.

b)  Members of the sub-committee must have completed mandatory training.

c)  For consistency, unless unavoidably indisposed or conflicted, once appointed, the same Members shall comprise the sub-committee (and any adjournment of it) over the course of the full consideration of the matter (and any related matter) that it has been convened to consider, until such time as the matter is disposed of.


The sub-committee must include at least one Cabinet Member
