Debate: 20 MPH Zones

“This council commits itself to commence work on all outstanding 20 MPH zones by the end of this municipal year, 31st March 2021, to include the necessary measures to ensure effective enforcement. Since the outbreak of CovId19 while there has been a decrease in the number vehicles on the city’s roads there has been a significant increase in the number of vehicles travelling at excessive speed. We urge the council together with the money from the government to implement dedicated cycle ways to fulfil their commitment to bring in the 20 MPH Zones so Coventry can truly be considered a safe city.”

Debate: Windrush Scandal

“This council pledges to oppose the criminalisation of Windrush families, calling for an end to the “hostile environment” policies and for support for those who have been affected by them. We call for 22nd June to be celebrated as annual Windrush Day and we will press central Government for a public enquiry into the scandal.”

Furthermore we will:

·  Continue actively campaigning for an end to all “hostile environment “ policy measures and to continue to call on the Government to enable the Windrush generation to acquire British citizenship at no cost and with proactive assistance throughout the process.

·  Join with other councils and celebrate an annual Windrush Day in Coventry and for Coventry to welcome the Government’s announcement to make 22nd June each year an annual celebration to recognise and honour the enormous contribution of those who arrived between 1948 and 1971.

·  Press the Prime Minister to call for an independent public enquiry into the Windrush scandal.

·  Demand the Government fully supports advice agencies in their work to achieve justice for all Coventry residents of the Windrush generation

·  Support the call for fees for naturalisation to be waived for all those who have been affected.

·  Oppose the criminalisation of Windrush families”.
