Statements (if any)




To be moved by Councillor G Ridley, and seconded by Councillor P Male

Following the Council’s admission that talks have taken place with Wasps RFC regarding a potential bail-out, this Council calls on the Leader of the Council to explain why his version of events differs from those of the Chief Executive.


To be moved by Councillor R Brown and seconded by Councillor P Seaman

“The Autumn Statement of 17th November 2022 gave little hope to thousands of hard-working Coventry families as they struggle to pay higher energy bills, higher food bills, higher fuel costs, higher mortgage payments, higher rents and now, thanks to the Tories higher taxes. There was no apology from the chancellor for the failed ideology and mismanagement over the last 12 years that has left this country with record levels of debt and recession. No apology for heaping the burden of their failure onto the already strained shoulders of ordinary working people whilst they persevere to allow bankers to get obscene bonuses, do nothing to close the non-dom tax loopholes and do nothing to stop independent fee-paying schools avoiding VAT. It is clear where their priorities lie. The tax burden is now 37% of GDP, the highest in living memory, in total contradiction to their 2019 manifesto pledge and still they do not apologise. They have kicked the Dilnot reforms on social care down the road for another 2 years, leaving local authorities to fend for themselves and still they do not apologise.


It is clear that after 12 years of continuous failure, Conservatives have no plan for economic growth, for education, for health and social care and certainly they have no plan for a greener future.


The hard-working people of Coventry have had enough and Coventry demands that the Government in Westminster fills the gap created by its Ministers, instead of forcing the Local Authority to raise Council Tax to make ends meet.


Failing that, the current government should submit to the judgement of the people and call a general election now.”
