The Cambridgeshire County Council UKIP group has announced their intention to make changes in their committee membership.

The group intends to recommend to Full Council that current Chairman of Adults Committee, Councillor Paul Clapp will step down. In the planned move it is intended he swap places with Health Committee member and spokes Councillor Rylance.

It is suggested that Councillor Clapp will take Councillor Rylance's place on the Cambridgeshire Health and Wellbeing Board while she, in her new position as Chairman, will take his place on the General Purposes Committee.

The change in Chairmanship will have to be agreed by the Full Council when it meets on 14 October.

Group Leader of the UKIP Group, Cambridgeshire County Councillor Paul Bullen, said: "The swap is being recommended to help support Councillor Clapp who has had a recent diagnosis of severe dyslexia. While this means he finds it hard to cope with the amount of paperwork a chairman needs to deal with and read it also gives him vital insight for his new role on health. Equally, Councillor Rylance, with a background in caring will be an ideal Chairman for the Adults Committee. The Council will be supporting Councillor Clapp following the recent diagnosis."
