Several major appointments to west of Scotland quangos including Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) and Strathclyde Police Authority (SPA) will also be confirmed at Glasgow's first full council meeting since the local elections.
Among the names who will split the £720,000 set aside for salaries between 26 jobs, The Herald understands there will be no places at the executive committee top table for former MSPs Frank Aveety and Bill Butler. The pair will take secondary roles chairing policy committees, worth £23,400 each-a-year.
