Questions from Members of the Council and Public

In accordance with Rule No. 14.1 Councillor P. Peacock has submitted the following question to Council.

 

“This year, as in all recent years, we have witnessed an increased number of instances of extreme weather causing death and destruction in all continents of the world. One particular instance of extreme weather occurred in British Columbia when temperatures reached 49.5 degrees Celsius causing a 195% increase in sudden deaths and increased numbers of wildfires which led to public and emergency services to be stretched to breaking point. Whole communities were overcome by the effects of extreme heat without being aware of the danger.

 

There is little reason to suppose that such circumstances could not occur in the UK, so my question is what lessons can be learnt from the experience of British Columbia by the Council in terms of responding to keep residents of the district safe and ensuring that our services and those of our local emergency services are not overwhelmed in such circumstances?”

Notices of Motion

In accordance with Rule No. 13.1, Councillor P. Peacock will move and Councillor Mrs D. Cumberlidge will second a motion to the following effect:

 

“The Council notes that:

 

·         The ‘uplift’ to Universal Credit of £20 per week (£86.67 per month) is scheduled to end on 6 October 2021;

·         The latest figures show that 5.9 million people in the United Kingdom claim Universal Credit, up from 3 million claimants before the Covid pandemic;

·         Nationally the withdrawal of the ‘uplift’ will affect six in every ten single parent families and that 40% of all claimants are in work;

·         Here in Newark and Sherwood 9045 people currently claim Universal Credit, before the COVID pandemic that number was 4363, a rise of 107%;

·         Currently Newark and Sherwood District Council has 2056 claims for Council Tax support from Universal Credit Claimants, before the Covid pandemic that number was 1330, a rise of 55%; and

·         Current price inflation, food shortages and increasing energy bills disproportionately affect those on the lowest incomes in Newark and Sherwood and the United Kingdom as a whole.

 

Therefore, Newark and Sherwood District Council shall write to the Prime Minister urging that the £20 ‘uplift’ in Universal Credit be maintained/re-instated to enable Universal Credit claimants to adapt to the recent increased costs of living.”
