    Questions from Members

    The following question(s) from Members has/have been submitted in pursuance of Council Procedure Rule 9:

    (a) Question from Councillor E Brambley-Crawshaw to the Cabinet Member for Transport:
    What progress is being made to install Rapid Electric Vehicle charging points in Council owned car parks and other publicly accessible locations?

    (b) Question from Councillor C Topping to the Cabinet Member for Customer Services & Operational Partnerships
    The former Waveney District Council requires residents to put their food and kitchen waste in the black bin and is sent for incineration. The former Suffolk Coastal District allows food waste with garden and this is turned into a valuable soil conditioner. When will this disparity in service within our single Council be rectified? And can we be assured that we adopt the higher of these two standards?

    (c) Question from Councillor L Gooch to the Leader of the Council
    I understand that prior to the Merger, Waveney District Council offered interim payments to applicants for Universal Credit if their payments were delayed. Ifthat is so, can the Portfolio Holder please explain for the benefit of all Councillors how that is now working as part of East Suffolk's support to struggling residents?

    (d) Question from Councillor P Byatt to the Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Economic Development
    I am sure we all share the disappointing news that Lowestoft has missed outwith its application to the Government’s Future High Street Funds to support development in Lowestoft. This is particularly frustrating as our neighbours justup the coast were successful. Can Councillor Rivett shed any light on how this came about, given the significant needs of Lowestoft?

    (b) Councillor G Elliott has submitted the following Notice of Motion:

    "This Council notes that:
    • the former Waveney District Council had a policy of actively supporting Fairtrade whilst the former Suffolk Coastal District Council had no such policy.
    • Suffolk has eight “Fairtrade Towns”, five of which are in the East Suffolk Council area, two in the former Waveney District and three in the former Suffolk Coastal District.
    • Global Fairtrade sales last year generated £142 million in Fairtrade Premium. Farmers in 73 countries have invested this money in their communities, increasing business productivity and contributing to the achievement of the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
    • Despite this positive news, exploitation remains rampant in global supply chains. More than 40 million people are trapped in modern slavery, including forced labour, and 152 million young people in child labour. Hundreds of millions more are earning less than a living income or wage
    .This Council resolves to:
    • Renew the commitment to Fairtrade of the former Waveney DistrictCouncil and expand this to the new East Suffolk Council.
    • Actively promote Fairtrade locally, through support for local groups, in the media including social media, and events, including during Fairtrade Fortnight.
    • Review its procurement policy, including its catering offer, to ensure that Fairtrade produce is chosen wherever possible, and that Fair Trade considerations are included as a preference in any contracts going out to tender."
