Public Questions and Petitions


Notices of Motion

    The Council is asked to consider the following two Motions that have been submitted in accordance with Council Procedure Rule 11:


    a.    Condemning Terrorism and Hate Crimes


    It will be moved by Councillor Zaheer and seconded by Councillor Emsley that:


    “This Council unequivocally condemns the recent terror attacks at the Manchester Arena, London Bridge and Borough Market and Finsbury Park.


    The aim of terror attacks is to cause devastation and to drive a wedge between communities


    The Council pays tribute to Greater Manchester Police and the Metropolitan Police and the emergency services for their hard work and dedication in dealing with these attacks.


    The Council also notes that hate crime has risen sharply over recent years and this is something we also condemn.


    To let distrust and hatred grow between our communities would be to let terrorists think they can win. We as a council and the wider community cannot let that happen.”


    b.    Homelessness


    It will be moved by Councillor Robinson and seconded by Councillor O’Rourke that:


    “The Council notes that, according to Crisis:

    • On average, homeless people die at just 47 years old.
    • People sleeping on the street are almost 17 times more likely to have been victims of violence. More than one in three people sleeping rough have been deliberately hit or kicked or experienced some other form of violence whilst homeless.
    • Homeless people are over nine times more likely to take their own life than the general population.


    The Council believes that homelessness needs urgent action in order to remedy it.


    The Council therefore resolves to:


    1)  Work with the Mayor of Greater Manchester to help achieve is aims of:


    • Building specialised supported accommodation for young people with access to education, volunteering and employment opportunities.
    • Expanding mental health and rehabilitation programmes across Greater Manchester, including re-building community mental health support, recovery-led accommodation and arts programmes.
    • Bringing empty properties back in to use for people threatened with becoming homeless.


    2) Continue to implement the youth homelessness actions agreed by Council at its meeting on 23/1/2013.”
