Debate - War in Ukraine

12.1  To be moved by Councillor P Male and seconded by Councillor M Lapsa:


As we approach the first anniversary of the conflict, this Council

 reaffirms its support for the people of Ukraine.


12.2   To be moved by Councillor AS Khan and seconded by Councillor

  G Lloyd:


The Elections Act 2022 was passed by Parliament in April 2022, requiring voters in Great Britain to show photo ID before being issued with a ballot paper at UK elections and local elections in England.  

This Council believes that the requirement of the Act for voters to show photo ID before being issued with a ballot paper is unnecessary; it addresses a problem that doesn’t exist. 

This Council is committed to encouraging greater participation in elections and believes that the requirement for electors to show photo identification when voting will be a deterrent to voters who don’t possess valid photo ID.


This Council urges the Government not to implement this policy or, at the very least, postpone the necessity of voter ID at polling stations until a prolonged National Information Campaign can be implemented.

There has been very little publicity around this issue, and we believe that many voters will be turned away at the polls for not having the necessary documentation and will therefore be disenfranchised”.
