Notices of Motion

Councillor McKnight to Move:

 

Go n-aithníonn Comhairle Chathair agus Cheantar an tSratha Báin go bhfuil ailse cheirbheacs ar cheann de na hailsí is mó inchoiscthe sna mná.  Agus mar sin, scríobhfaidh an Chomhairle chuig an Rúnaí Buan um Shláinte agus chuig an Aire Sláinte sna 26 Chontae á ngríosú a bpolasaí scagthástála a athmheas.  Creideann muid, chomh maith le scagthástáil phobail, ba chóir go mbeadh tástáil smearaidh ar fáil do bhean ar bith, is cuma cén aois, má iarrann siad í. #smearondemand

 

That Derry City and Strabane District Council recognises that cervical cancer is one of the most preventable cancers in women. And as such will write to the Permanent Secretary for Health and to the Minister for Health in the 26 Counties urging them to reconsider their screening policy. We believe in addition to population screening, a smear test should be available to any female, regardless of age, if they request it. #smearondemand

 

Councillor McMahon to Move:

 

Go cuireann an Comhairle seo in aghaidh pleananna mianach óir agus monarcha phróiseála a fhorbairt sna Speiríní LAO/2017/1249/F agus an réigiún níos leithne.  De dheasca na mbaol tromchúiseach sláinte is timpeallachta ag baint leo, tá an Comhairle in aghaidh úsáide ciainíde le haghaidh mianadóireachta, a sháraíonn rún an Aontais Eorpaigh ar an 27 Aibreán i gcur i bhfeidhm treorach mianadóireachta dramhaíola (2006/21/EC).

 

This Council opposes plans to develop a goldmine and processing plant LA10/2017/1249/F in the Sperrins and wider region.  Given the serious health and environmental risks involved, this Council is opposed to the use of cyanide for mining purposes, which also contravenes the European Parliament resolution of 27 April 2017 on the implementation of the Mining Waste Directive (2006/21/EC).

 

Councillor Dobbins to Move:

 

That this Council recognises that the trend of domestic violence is prevalent throughout Ireland and worldwide and that we join the call for an end to domestic violence in all forms and societies and that this Council is committed to working in partnership with statutory, voluntary and community organisations to prevent domestic violence and reduce the harm it causes to individuals, families and the community as a whole.

 

Councillor Carr to Move:

 

That this Council recognise and celebrate the achievement of Derry City Football Team of 1988/1989 on the 30th anniversary of them winning the Treble in the League of Ireland.

 

Also that this Council calls a Special Meeting of Council to discuss conferring the Freedom of the City on Mr Jim McLaughlin, Manager of the 1988/1989 Derry City FC Team.
