COUNCILLORS’ QUESTION TIME (Time Allowed - 30 minutes) pdf icon PDF 534 KB

11.1    Urgent Questions (Part 4 - Paragraph 9.2.(b) of Constitution – Page 4-9)

 

With the permission of the Mayor, questions on urgent issues may be tabled with the proviso of a subsequent written response if the issue requires research or is considered by the Mayor to be minor.

 

Please note that the Mayor will decide whether a question is urgent or not.

 

The definition of an urgent question is “An issue which could not reasonably have been foreseen or anticipated prior to the deadline for the submission of questions and which needs to be considered before the next meeting of the Council.”

 

Submission of urgent questions to Council requires the Member when submitting the question to specify why the issue could not have been reasonably foreseen prior to the deadline and why it has to be considered before the next meeting.  A supplementary question is not permitted.

 

11.2    Councillors’ Questions (Part 4 – Paragraph 9.2(a) of Constitution – Page 4 - 8)

 

The list of fifty one questions and their written responses are attached to the agenda.

Minutes:

1.1.   Urgent Questions

 

There were no urgent questions. 

 

1.2.   Questions by Councillors

 

NOTED

 

1       The fifty one questions on the Council agenda and written responses provided by the relevant Cabinet Member.

 

2       The following supplementary questions and responses received for the questions indicated below:

 

Question 1 (Cost to the Council of Temporary Accommodation) from Councillor Neville to Councillor Taylor, Leader of the Council:

 

“I thank Councillor Taylor for his response but can I ask him to elaborate on the response to point (c) in my question regarding the action taken to raise the matter with London Councils and the Government in terms of the need to review Homeless Person legislation and guidance, given the increasing pressure being faced by the Council.”

 

Reply from Councillor Taylor:

 

“In my answer I have tried to address the issue not only from the perspective of the Borough, but across London as a whole which I think is a more appropriate focus for any response.

 

There is clearly a link between the worsening housing position across London and the impact of the Governments Housing Policy and Welfare Reforms including changes in Housing Rent Policy; the decision to extend the Right to Buy to Housing Association properties; the enforced sale of Council owned housing, introduction of the welfare benefits cap and changes in Local Housing Allowance.  Supply has been further affected by Inner London boroughs now looking to secure cheaper property in Outer London in order to place their households in temporary accommodation.

 

This position has been created as an outcome of the current Government’s Housing Policy and I therefore feel it would be more appropriate if Councillor Neville were to join me in questioning whether the Government has the right policy and priorities, which I feel will be a more effective way to address the current position.”

 

Question 2 (Insurance Premium Tax) from Councillor Levy to Councillor Taylor, Leader of the Council:

 

“Does the Leader not agree that despite this “stealth tax” in combination with the wider regressive fiscal policy and cuts, which are impacting disproportionately on the most vulnerable, the Government is still failing to control the deficit and what impact does he feel this is having on the residents of Enfield?

 

Reply from Councillor Taylor:

 

“Members may be surprised to hear that tax receipts fell in August whilst the deficit continues to rise.  I do worry about the extent and impact of the next round of cuts the Government are planning given their  ongoing failure to manage the economy and failure to control the deficit.  It strikes me that the impact of this failure will result in more cuts to public sector services and will also damage the welfare and income of residents across Enfield.”

 

Question 4 (Impact of the Government’s Austerity Measures on Children’s Services) from Councillor Barry to Councillor Orhan, Cabinet Member for Education, Children’s Services and Protection:

 

“I thank the Cabinet Member for sharing some of her concerns and would ask if she could clarify further what impact she  ...  view the full minutes text for item 67.

Scrutiny Annual Workprogramme & Workstreams 2015/16 pdf icon PDF 440 KB

To receive a report from Overview & Scrutiny Committee setting out the Scrutiny Annual Work Programme and workstreams identified for 2015/16.                 (Report No.54A)

 

Members are asked to note:

 

·                that the report has been referred on to Council for formal approval following consideration by Overview & Scrutiny Committee (2 June 15) & consultation with Cabinet (16 September 15).

 

·                Any comments made by Cabinet on 16th September 2015 will be reported to Council as part of the Council amendment sheet tabled at the meeting.

Minutes:

Councillor Levy moved and Councillor Smith seconded the report from the Overview and Scrutiny Committee (No.54A) setting out the Scrutiny Annual Work Programme and workstreams identified by Overview & Scrutiny Committee (OSC) for 2015/16.

 

NOTED

 

1.         The work programme and workstreams had been referred onto Council for formal approval following consideration by Overview & Scrutiny Committee (2 June 2015) and consultation with Cabinet on 16 September 2015.

 

2.         The work programme proposed by OSC included programmes for both the Standing Panels on Health & Crime as well as a list of the agreed workstreams prioritised for 2015/16 (Appendix 2) and additional list of potential workstreams identified by Members (Appendix 3).

 

3.      The important role of scrutiny with the context of the Council’s governance arrangements and also in relation to member development.

 

4.      The more outcome based, balanced and flexible approach towards scrutiny provided through the workstreams and need identified to ensure consistency in membership in order to allow members to develop their knowledge and expertise in the areas being reviewed.

 

5.      Cabinet, in considering and recommending the work programme and work streams to Council had noted their wide ranging and flexible nature, alongside the need:

 

a.      to ensure that Cabinet Members were invited to engage in reviews relating to services within their portfolio as well as with OSC on a more systematic basis outside of the formal work programme; and

 

b.      to ensure, subject to available resources and time, that OSC were encouraged to take as wide a view as possible in terms of scrutiny’s role around policy and service development including looking at areas of service not currently being provided and the justification for this.

 

6.      Despite initial concerns expressed by the Opposition Group regarding the recent changes introduced to the scrutiny function it was felt that a lot of valuable work had been undertaken on a cross party basis under the new scrutiny model.  Concerns were however recognised in relation to the need to ensure that members from both groups were encouraged to attend, participate and engage in the scrutiny process.

 

7.      The thanks expressed by members to the officers involved in supporting the scrutiny function for their help in delivering a comprehensive and well balanced scrutiny programme.

 

The recommendations in the report were then put to the vote and agreed unanimously, without further debate or a vote.

 

AGREED to approve adoption of the 2015/16 scrutiny work programme and workstreams for the Council’s Overview & Scrutiny Committee, as detailed in Appendix 1 of the report.

Abstentions: 0

 

Please note the minutes reflect the order in which the items were dealt with at the meeting.

71.

MOTIONS

12.1    In the name of Councillor Brett:

 

“Enfield Council regrets the recent statements regarding cuts to PCSOs at a time when reported violent crime is increasing in Enfield.”

 

12.2    In the name of Councillor Maguire:

 

“Enfield Council notes the desperate plight of refugees fleeing Syria and seeking safety in the countries of the EU.

 

This Council will work with other London Councils to play a part in a national response to the crisis.

 

This Council, however, insists that the Government must fully fund the national response for as long as it takes and not just for one year.”

 

12.3    In the name of Councillor Orhan:

 

“Following the campaign in the Londra Gazette and my letter to the Schools Minister urging him to intervene and force the AQA and OCR exam boards to reconsider the decision to scrap “A” levels and GCSEs of certain community languages such as Bengali, Gujarati, Punjabi, Polish and Turkish, it has been disappointing that other than a reprieve of a year no firm announcement of a commitment has been made by the Government that a u-turn has been achieved.  It begs the question who is in charge of education in the UK and if this Government is committed to providing language skill opportunities much in demand in business and much in need by an outward facing country.

 

As this is of a huge interest for Enfield residents I ask the Council to fully support me in a letter urging the government to make a public statement that community languages will be taught in school beyond 2017.”

 

12.4    In the name of Councillor N.Cazimoglu:

 

“The country, particularly London, is facing a housing crisis and residents in Enfield are feeling the effects.  This Council believes that the only real solution is to build more homes.

 

House building is at its lowest since the 1920’s; private rents have increased by 37% in the past five years and the government continue to use billions of pounds of public money to subsidise private landlords through housing benefit.

 

This Council believes that government is complacent about the housing crisis which is affecting many of our residents in Enfield.

 

We call on the government to grant local authorities the powers and financial ability to increase the supply of housing for our residents.  The government should go further than they already have in lifting the cap on borrowing for Housing Revenue Accounts.  Council’s must be given the financial flexibilities they need to be able to scale up housing development, both in partnership and directly.”

 

12.5    In the name of Councillor Laban:

 

“Enfield Council does not support any proposal for female only train carriages on trains. The idea amounts to nothing more than gender segregation and does nothing to address any of the issues of sexual harassment - those people travelling within the borough of Enfield should feel safe on trains, isolating women and treating them as the problem is not the answer.”

Minutes:

1.1     Councillor Brett moved and Councillor B.Charalambous seconded the following motion:

 

“Enfield Council regrets the recent statements regarding cuts to PCSOs at a time when reported violent crime is increasing in Enfield.”

 

Following a debate, the motion was put to the vote and agreed, with the following result:

 

For: 32

Against: 0

Abstentions: 19

 

Councillor Laban declared a non-pecuniary interest in the above motion.  She left the chamber, after the debate, but before the vote took place and took no part in the decision.

72.

To delete the last paragraph of the original motion and replace it with the following paragraphs:

 

“This Council recognises that the Government has contributed over £1.1billion in aid in response to the crisis in Syria/Iraq, the UK’s largest ever response to a humanitarian crisis. The Council also acknowledges the role and commitment of the Royal Navy, which has rescued over 6,700 people making the perilous journey across the Mediterranean.

 

This Council acknowledges and welcomes the Government’s decision to resettle 20,000 refugees over the lifetime of this current Parliament and requests that the cost of local authorities of this be borne by the National Government, not putting financial pressure on local authorities.”

 

Following a further debate, the amendment was put to the vote and lost with the following result:

 

For: 20

Against: 32

Abstentions: 0

 

The substantive (un-amended) motion was then put to the vote without any further debate, and agreed with the following result:
