STANDING ORDER 8 - QUESTIONS
To receive any questions by Members submitted in pursuance of Standing Order 8 (3).
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:
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;
a section on Social Value in the new Procurement Strategy; and
· Developing a Social Value Policy to underpin the new Procurement Strategy.
