Notices of Motion in accordance with Procedure Rule No. 8, if any.

(a)       Councillor L. Malyon

 

“That this Council will continue to send planning application information out to parish and town councils, as they always have done, as it is impossible for town and parish clerks to be able to print all the information off.”

 

(b)       Councillor L. Malyon

 

“That this Council sends a strong objection to the County Council with regard to the new charges for waste, this will cause more fly tipping which the District Council will have to pick up and incur the costs for, putting more pressure on services.”

 

(c)        Councillor C. Atkins

 

“That this Council calls upon the Government to reconsider the published transitional pension arrangements for women born on or after 6 April 1951 and to offer revised and fair transitional state pension arrangements for all women born on or after 6 April 1951 so that women do not live in hardship due to pension changes which they were not told about until it was too late to make alternative arrangements.”

 

(d)       Councillor K. Jackson

 

"That Staffordshire Moorlands District Council views with concern the injustice whereby the Treasury receives 50% of surpluses from the Mineworkers Pension Scheme, accumulating over £3 billion to date. This is taken from people and communities least able to afford it, particularly former coal mining areas in the Staffordshire Moorlands. The money taken out is out of proportion to the risk covered.  This Council requests that the Public Accounts Committee conduct an independent scrutiny to address this unfair arrangement and calls on its MPs to take up the case for further action in parliament."
