Matter for Consideration by Council

9.

Matter for Consideration by Council

Following the receipt of a requisition signed by Members of the Council, Madame Mayor has agreed that an Extraordinary Meeting of the Council should be held.

 

The requisition states:

 

“This Council notes that 10 years of austerity, the freezing of funding formulae and welfare reform has had a dramatic impact on the Council's funding, with a reduction of over £100million per year in that funding. It calls on Government to honour its pledge to fund in full our Covid-19 costs, direct and indirect, where there is currently a shortfall in excess of £70 million. Further, it calls on Government to work with us to ensure a fair funding deal for Croydon that recognises the huge demographic shift over the last decade which means that, although we are an Outer London borough, our needs are akin to a traditional Inner London Borough.”

10.

Exclusion of the Press and Public

The following motion is to be moved and seconded where it is proposed to exclude the press and public from the remainder of a meeting:

 

“That, under Section 100A(4) of the Local Government Act, 1972, the press and public be excluded from the meeting for the following items of business on the grounds that it involves the likely disclosure of exempt information falling within those paragraphs indicated in Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972, as amended.”
