Message from the Leader of Council

Minutes:

Prior to the beginning of the meeting the Leader made an announcement concerning Sir David Amess MP, it read as follows:

 

“Before we start tonight’s meeting I would invite everybody present to join me in paying our respects to Sir David Amess MP, who was murdered last Friday while meeting with his constituents.

 

I am sure that I speak for everyone associated with Eden District Council in denouncing this act of violence, in particular that it was perpetrated directly in relation to Sir David’s performing his duties as an elected representative. I call on everyone to honour his memory by demonstrating the “kindness and love to all” that Sir David’s family have appealed for - particularly as we conduct the duties that we have been elected to deliver. 

 

Many of our Councillors (and officers) hold face to face meetings with businesses and residents. Of course I have no wish to restrict meetings with the public in any way, but  I also want to ensure that the safety of our members and officers is properly assessed and appropriate guidance given. I therefore call on our Chief Executive to assess the risks associated with elected councillors discharging their duties within their communities and to issue appropriate health and safety guidelines to all members and officers as soon as practically possible.

 

I propose that we observe a minutes silence in honour of Sir David and call on all present to please stand.

 

Thank you”

 

A minutes silence was observed by those in attendance at the meeting
