Motions

13.1    Motion in the name of Councillor Joanne Laban

 

“Enfield Council believes that air quality is an important issue in our borough. However the Mayor of London’s proposal to extend the Ultra-Low Emission Zone to the North Circular is not the solution that Enfield requires. Enfield Council agrees to seek alternative measures that will make a real difference to Enfield residents.”

 

13.2    Motion in the name of Councillor Doug Taylor

 

“Council notes the terrible fire at Grenfell Tower and believes that lessons must be learnt for the future by Government and all landlords.

 

1)    The public inquiry must have broad term of reference and be supported by the victims and their families of the fire.

2)    Government should use the recommendations of the inquiry to improve regulation of buildings and building works.

3)    Government should provide full funding to Councils and registered social landlords to implement fully the recommendations of the inquiry.

4)    Private sector landlords and other providers off accommodation should equally be required to implement any findings of the inquiry relevant to their sector.”

 

13.3    Motion in the name of Councillor Krystle Fonyonga

 

“This Council believes that the Government should lift the public sector pay cap and to fully finance the increase in salaries.  The Leader of the Council and the Leader of the Opposition are asked to write to the Prime Minister informing her of this Council’s position.” 

 

13.4    Motion in the name of Councillor Ayfer Orhan

 

“Now that Theresa May faces a revolt over her education policy by her own MP’s perhaps she will finally listen. So far she has failed to listen to professionals in the education sector and to Enfield parents who have called for ‘Fairer Funding’ for all schools.  This Council asks Cllr Orhan to continue her campaign in highlighting to our residents of the financial risks to struggling schools in Enfield of the Governments policy and to write once again to the Minster responsible for schools and demand extra money for all schools in Enfield.”

 

13.5    Motion in the name of Councillor Yasemin Brett

 

The NHS was founded on July 5th 1948 and in this founding month is a reminder to us of what the best of British really means - free publicly funded health care for all its citizens at the point of need.

 

The health economy needs to be adequately funded and Enfield suffers from a low funding level.

 

As we approach the 70th year of its founding, in both financial and recruitment terms the NHS faces major challenges. Services must remain public not profit driven. Integration between social care and health needs to work for the user. A new focus on mental health is required and must be funded at parity with the other health services.

 

The NHS is a uniting institution for all of us culturally and across the generations deserving our full attention this year.

 

13.6    Motion in the name of Councillor Vicki Pite
