    Motions on Notice

    (i) The following Motion has been submitted by Councillor White:

    "This council proposes that the leader should write to Government to request that all enabling works for HS2 in Lichfield District should be paused until the notice to proceed to main works contractors has been approved.  As required by the Department of Transport, notice to proceed should not be given until management capability, affordability of contracts and robustness of revised business case have all been proven.  We see no reason why the District should suffer significant disruption and long term environmental destruction until detailed design and cost has been approved.  We also ask that HS2 Ltd significantly improves the effectiveness of its community engagement with those impacted by the line."

    (ii) The following motion has been submitted by Councillor Mrs Lax:

     

    “That this Council addresses, in all its written, digital and verbal communications, all of its Members in a consistent, respectful and equal manner which does not differentiate between their gender or their marital status.

     

    It has been custom and practice for the Council to add the honorific title to female councillors, but not to do so for male councillors. It is recognised that this was only ever intended to be polite and respectful but it is felt that addressing all Members in the same consistent manner better reflects our ambitions to be truly inclusive and empowering. Of course, to differentiate between Councillors with the same surname, we can use their given name rather than their title.”
