Motions

11.1    Motion in the name of Councillor Barry

 

“The results of the recent election in Winchmore Hill once more showed that our residents support the Cycle Enfield scheme.  Opposition candidates made this an election issue and their share of the vote decreased by 8.5%.

 

We ask that the Leader of the Council and the Cabinet members for Community Safety & Public Health, the Environment and Economic Regeneration & Business do all they can to ensure that the other parts of this scheme are built at soon as possible so that other parts of the borough can also benefit from the advantages it brings.”

 

11.2    Motion in the name of Councillor Brett

 

“The NHS has turned 70 on July 5th. This internationally admired British institution, the world’s first, universally public funded health care system delivering on the basis of clinical need, and not the ability to pay, employs over a million dedicated staff. It is in crisis though, following eight years of effectively frozen budgets, and reforms that have sought to undermine the integrity of the NHS. Staff deliver day in day out under the threat of repeated reorganisations.

 

The government has promised the cash starved NHS an extra 20 billion by 2023, with only 4 billion available immediately rather than the immediate 7.7billion it needs. This is disastrous and is no birthday present.

 

We call on the Council to write to the government to honour the NHS and its staff properly by appointing July 5th a Bank Holiday and by providing the funding it needs now.”

 

11.3    Motion in the name of Councillor Taylor

 

“Enfield Council notes the report of the National Audit Office on Universal Credit and calls for an immediate halt to the roll out and a fundamental reappraisal of the system.”

 

11.4    Motion in the name of Councillor Laban

 

“This Chamber agrees that the new Administration has fallen at the first hurdle by the announcement that the Annual Town Show will not be held.

 

This Council has no confidence in the leader of the council because if the administration cannot facilitate a long-standing event such as the Annual Town Show it is not competent enough to deal with the complex challenges our borough faces over the next four years.”

 

11.5    Motion in the name of Councillor Alessandro Georgiou

 

“For all future international tournaments, the St. George’s Flag should have a prominent place within the chamber whilst the England team is still in the tournament.”

 

11.6    Motion in the name of Councillor Caliskan

 

“The World Cup is a fantastic sporting event which many of us thoroughly look forward to and enjoy.

 

This Council notes the appalling statistic that domestic violence increases by 26% when England play and 38% when England loses.

 

Sadly, women experience violence and abuse at the hands of their partners every day, not just when football is on TV.  Football, like drinking, drugs and gambling is not a reason but an excuse for abuse.

 

Stopping domestic violence is a priority of Enfield Council and we will  ...  view the full agenda text for item 11.
