Minutes:

Members considered a report which asked them to decide whether any further action was required in respect of a petition to Council regarding the effects of funding cuts on services to vulnerable people.

 

The petition had been presented to Budget Council on 24 February 2011.  In accordance with constitutional requirements for a petition with more than 1,000 signatures, it was referred for debate to the next Council meeting, on 7 April, together with the Officer briefing note attached at Annex 1 to the report.  Council then referred the matter to Executive (Cabinet) to determine any appropriate action.

 

In the light of the amendments made to the budget at the last Council meeting, on 30 June, and the action already taken to communicate with MPs as set out in the petition, Members were asked to decide whether any further action was still required.
