Notices of Motion

Councillor D Kelly to Move:

 

That this Council acknowledges the commitments made in the Brexit negotiations - both the Joint Report and the Draft Agreement - where Irish/EU citizens in the North of Ireland ‘will continue to enjoy, exercise and have access to rights, opportunities and benefits as EU citizens’.

 

In recognising that this body of rights includes democratic rights (including the right to vote and stand as candidates in EU elections) and given that Ireland has been allocated two additional seats in the European Parliament, this Council calls on the Irish Government to amend the current legislation to allocate those seats to the North of Ireland to ensure EU citizens here continue to have representation in the European Parliament.

 

The Chief Executive to write to the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government with this request.

 

Go nglacann an Comhairle leis na gealltanais a rinneadh in idirbheartaíochaí an

Bhreatimeachta -idir an comhthuairisc agus an dréachtchomhaontú-‘inar féidir le saoránaigh Éireannacha/AE ó thuaidh a gcearta a fheidhmiú agus ina mbeidh, ar bhonn leanúnach, cead teacht ar chearta, dheiseanna agus leasa mar shaoránaigh AE.’

 

Ag aithint go gcludaíonn na cairteacha seo cearta daonlathacha (agus cead vótála agus ceadseasamh mar iarrthóirí i dtoghcháin AE) agus toisc gur tugadh dhá siochán FE sa bhreis d’Éire iarrann an Comhairle seo ar Rialtas na h’Éireann an reachtaíocht reatha a leasú agus an dá shiochán a chur ar fáil don tuaisceart agus cead vótál a a thabhairt do shaoránaigh an tuaiscirt do na suíocháin seo chun go mbeadh ionadaíocht acu i bParlaimint na hEorpa.

 

Iarr ar an phríomhfheidhmeannach scríobh chuig an Aire Tithíochta, Pleanála agus Rialtais Áitiúil leis an iarratas seo.

 

Councillor Cooper to Move:

 

This Council acknowledges the result of the EU Referendum of June 2016, recognises that the majority of people in the north of Ireland voted to remain and asserts that no one in the Derry & Strabane District council area voted for a bad deal, or a no deal, which in either case could wreck our economy and jeopardise our peace process.

 

The Council agrees to write to the British Secretary of State and to the Prime Minister expressing its support for a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal or where no deal has been negotiated and in both cases remaining in the EU must be an option – based on the bottom line which has been expressed by the majority of elected MLAs in supporting:

·         The full protection of Human Rights and equality provisions

·         No exclusion from the single market or customs union

·         The full protection of the Good Friday Agreement in all of its parts

·         That the backstop agreed by both the British Government and the EU27 is the bottom line in order to safeguard our political and economic stability now and for the future.”

 

Go n-aithníonn an Chomhairle seo toradh Reifreann AE Meithimh 2016, agus aithníonn go vótáil tromlach an phobail i dtuaisceart na hÉireann fanacht agus dearbhaíonn nár vótáil éinne i gceantar Chomhairle Chathair Dhoire & Cheantar an tSratha Báin  ...  view the full agenda text for item 9.
