Zero Tolerance of Hate Crime

    To consider following Motion submitted in accordance with Council Procedure Rule 11:-

     

    Zero Tolerance of Hate Crime

     

    To be moved by Councillor Farnell and seconded by Councillor Dearnley:-

     

    “This Council is extremely concerned about the increase in hate crime which has reportedly risen 57 per cent since the EU referendum vote, according to the national Police Chiefs’ Council.  We have also seen examples of this in Manchester.

     

    The recent widely reported incident on the tram in Manchester involving alleged racially motivated abuse is appalling. This horrendous display of racial abuse has no place in our society and must not be tolerated.

     

    The United Kingdom and Rochdale has a proud history of celebrating our diversity, which has enriched our country and borough in so many ways and we must have zero tolerance towards those who act in this way.”

    Minutes:
