In terms of Standing Order No. 14, submit Motion by Councillor Wilkinson and seconded by Councillor Marshall in the following terms: -
"The Conservative Group calls on North Ayrshire Council to reconsider its proposal to introduce a centralised call centre system in Irvine.

We call on the Administration to state the estimated cost of the call centre and to clearly explain how this centre will deliver better value and service than efficient local offices".
