Opposition Questions to Council - November 2018

You can find the questions asked at this month's council meeting by the Liberal Democrat opposition here.

The Leader of the Opposition, Councillor John Leech, will ask:
1. To the Executive Member with Responsibility for Provision of Homeless Accommodation:
What progress had been made on the promise to ensure that there is a supervised bed for all rough sleepers every night over the winter in Manchester, and how many beds are now available?  

2. To the Executive Member for Transport:
On 24th October the Executive Member rightly stated that pollution was "a serious public health concern" and that "doing nothing is not an option." What assessment has she made of the impact on the least well-off drivers, who often drive the oldest, most polluting vehicles, if Clean Air Zones were to be introduced with financial penalties for the most polluting vehicles?

3. To the Executive Member for Highways:
How many pothole repairs were outstanding by the end of October 2018, and what is the longest outstanding repair?

4. To the Executive Member for Highways and Transport:

Councillor Richard Kilpatrick will ask:

1. Given the winter conditions facing those who find themselves sleeping rough on the streets of our city, does the leadership of the council still feel that mobile soup kitchens should be prevented from operating in Manchester?

2. According to Citizen Advice, a tenant who complains about a problem in their home is 46% likely to be evicted within 6 months. What is the council doing to protect tenants who complain about the quality of their housing to the council from revenge eviction?

3. What will the executive member do to ensure that every department of the council, including the planning department, meet with our cities new ambition to phase out fossil fuels by 2038?
