Motions Submitted Under Standing Order 8

(i)         4/2000 Submitted by Councillors Flood and Bettison


That this Council deplores the arrogant, cynical and uncaring attitude displayed by a local member of the Labour Government in her desire to move the Headquarters of the Meteorological Office away from Bracknell.  Further, that this Council seeks the assistance of the two Conservative Members of Parliament representing this Borough and pledges its support for the employees, spouses, children and other family members who face the prospect of either having to move hundreds of miles away or seeking alternative employment.


(ii)        5/2000 Submitted by Councillors Harrison and Ward


This Council deplores the Labour Government policies on Housing as expressed in the Government Green Paper.  In particular we oppose the Government's intention to force the sale of our remaining council house stock to external companies.


[Note: In accordance with the terms of Standing Order 8, Motion 5/2000 stands referred to the Social Services & Housing Committee]
