First, does your troop have written job descriptions for all leadership
positions? If so, have the boys read them, if not, that is something you
should look into.
Second, here is one way of looking at the situation,
Look at all the patrol leaders as a patrol of their own, with the SPL as
their PL. When the patrol leaders are meeting as a group, the SPL is in
charge, but when he is with another group, he is not, the PL of that group
Also, talk with the PL of the patrol in question, and help him get a bit of
backbone, and show him what leadership is.
Hopefully JLT will help everything out, but in the meantime............
