Notices of Motion

Councillor D Kelly to Move:

 

That this Council supports the granting of Special Designated Status for the north of Ireland within the EU.

 

Go dtacaíonn an Chomhairle seo le bronnadh Stádas RéamhcheapthaSpeisialta ar thuaisceart na hÉireanntaobh istigh d’Aontas na hEorpa. 

 

Alderman Hussey to Move:

 

That Derry City & Strabane District Council, in the absence of a working Northern Ireland Assembly and Executive Government, request Her Majesty's Secretary of State for Northern Ireland to review the delayed devolvement of Regeneration Powers, with appropriate resources, to Local government in Northern Ireland and thereafter urge consideration of enactment of such Devolved Powers to Northern Ireland's Local Authorities. 

 

Councillor Reilly to Move:

 

The Council calls upon the UK Government to make fair transitional state pension arrangements for all women born on or after 6th April 1951, who have unfairly borne the burden of the increase to the State Pension Age (SPA) with lack of appropriate notification.

 

The Council calls upon the Government to reconsider transitional arrangements for women born on or after 6th April 1951, so that women do not live in hardship due to pension changes they were not told about until it was too late to make alternative arrangements.

 

 

Councillor Campbell to Move:

 

Ábhar ruin

 

Go dtugann Comhairle Chathair Dhoire agus Cheantar an tSratha Báin haire go bhfuil buartha faoin phróiseas comhairliúcháin reatha atá idir lámha ag Foras na Gaeilge maidir le maoiniú do Chultúrlann Chanáin.  De thoradh an chomhairliúcháin seo, seans ann go gcaillfidh an Chultúrlann cuid mhór maoiniú agus d’fhéadfadh go ndruidfear an foirgneamh bharr sin.

 

Aithníonn an Chomhairle an méid mór atá déanta ag an Chultúrlann chun an Ghaeilge agus an Gaelachas a chur chun cinn i nDoire chomh maith lena hiarrachtaí an teanga a chur ar fáil ar bhun tras-phobail do gach saoránach sa chathair.

 

Glaonnmuid ar Fhoras na Gaeilge Rogha (ii) a chur i bhfeidhm chun cinntiú nach gcuireann aon pholasaí amach anseo todhchaí Chultúrlann Chanáin i mbaol.

 

Motion

 

That Derry City and Strabane District Council notes with concern the current consultation being carried out by Foras na Gaeilge relating to funding of Cultúrlann Chanáin.  This consultation may result in the Cultúrlann losing a major portion of its funding and could, potentially, result in the building closing.

 

Council acknowledges the immense contribution that the Cultúrlann has made to the promotion of the Irish language and Irish culture in Derry as well as its efforts to make the language accessible on a cross-community basis to all citizens of the city.

 

We call on Foras na Gaeilge to implement Option (ii) to ensure that any future policy does not jeopardise the future of Cultúrlann Chanáin.
