NOTICES OF MOTION

To consider the following Notices of Motion, which have been submitted pursuant to Standing Order 9 (1):

 

(1)                Universal Credit

 

Cr. Jennifer Evans to propose:

 

"Recent reports by Citizens Advice and the Rowntree Foundation have highlighted problems associated with the roll-out of Universal Credit, which are leading to increases in debt, rent arrears, evictions and families in temporary accommodation.

 

In view of this, Rushmoor Borough Council calls upon HM Government to pause the implementation of Universal Credit immediately in order to introduce measures to avoid these problems, and, in this way, protect our residents from them."

 

(2)                Social Value in Procurement

 

Cr. J.B. Canty to propose:

 

“This Council:

·       Notes the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 which requires local authorities to consider how services they procure might secure wider social, economic and environmental benefits for an area.

·       Recognises that embedding Social Value within contracts for goods and services can help drive positive outcomes for residents.

 

Therefore, this Council will strengthen the role of Social Value in procurement by:

·     Giving Social Value greater weighting when scrutinising bids for future contracts in goods and services;

·     Including a section on Social Value in the new Procurement Strategy; and

·     Developing a Social Value Policy to underpin the new Procurement Strategy.
