Liverpool council motions round-up, vol 2
Buried away at item number 20 on tonight's full council meeting at Liverpool is a two line motion.
"As a council committed to ensuring equality and celebrating diversity, this council expects elected members to comply with the standards in public life at all times," reads the motion by Richard Mclinden, Pam Thomas and Janet Kent.
If debated it could lead to an explosive debate in the wake of Cllr Kent's resignation from the standards committee in protest at how the panel took no action against Liberal Democrat Sharon Green, who was at the centre of a row over pictures mocking the disabled on her Facebook page.
The usual array of motions are also on the agenda for tonight including one from council leader Joe Anderson hitting out at national politicians who "have chosen to use Liverpool's terrible deal from Government for political mischief making and believes that those national politicians who have abused their position and access to the media to condemn the council should hang their heads in shame".
Liverpool Liberal Democrat leader Warren Bradley wants the libraries and leisure centres to be included in the review of the youth service to "allow the Council to bring forward a creative model unique to Liverpool, that could engage the voluntary and community sector directly in the delivery of these core areas, and help to sustain some groups in the face of the budget decisions".
There are other motions about parking, AV, apprentices, condemnation of deputy Liberal Democrat leader Simon Hughes MP, international women's day, and the cancelled boat show.
