Merthyr Tydfil CBC is considering a proposal which would allow members of the public to ask questions at council meetings, reported The Western Mail (4 May, p3).

The idea which has been put forward as part of a new set of standing orders for the authority would mean questions that had been submitted at least a day before the meeting could be asked.

Councillors are said to be warmly in favour of wide-ranging changes suggested by the Welsh Office as part of its drive for local government reform.

Deputy Labour Leader Linda Matthews said: 'There are some radical changes being proposed and a lot of people are saying not before time.'

Another councillor said: 'An important principle is the establishment of a partnership with the community and the people we represent. This truly represents a vision for the future.'
