• Armed Forces Pension Scheme
    It is extremely important to me, as it once again proves that HM Government has treated veterans with contempt and a total disregard by basically stealing from both of their pension pots.

  • Say "No" To Above inflation Increase in charges for Pensioners at Argyll & Bute Leisure Centres
    “LiveArgyll” the Charity that now runs Argyll & Bute Council’s Leisure Facilities has raised it’s charges for pensioners by 37%. There are now no concessions or discounts for annual subscriptions for pensioners. At the same time they have reduced Family Memberships by 18% which in effect, means that pensioners are seemingly bearing the brunt of the increases in order to subsidise Family Membership. Whilst not wanting to create division between young and old it seems proportionally unfair that pensioners who have seen their pensions deteriorate over the years with inflation may now, with this 37% increase in charges, be unable to afford to maintain a healthy lifestyle. A lifestyle that not only allows for healthy physical, mental and social activities but also has its rewards to the Scottish Health Service in reducing its burden. If you support this then please sign the petition below. Thank you https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/above-inflation-increase-in-charges-for-pensioners-at-argyll-bute-leisure-centres

    We believe that the proposed cuts will result in a reduced level of Fire and Rescue Service response which risks both public and firefighter safety. A hundred support staff jobs will be axed, 194 firefighter jobs lost and six fire stations closed across Greater Manchester under the plans. The number of fire engines would be reduced by nine, from 56 to 47 and the number of firefighters riding on all appliances across the region would reduce from five to four. Recent local and national incidents have shown the need for a fully resourced and immediately available Fire and Rescue Service in Greater Manchester, public and firefighter safety must come first!

  • Traffic Safety Mirror bottom of Lead Lane
    So motorists that are leaving the junction at the bottom of Cockpit Hill are able to have visability of approaching traffic from the left ( Lead Lane). As at the moment this is totally blind.

  • Regulate funeral firms and the role of local authorities in funerals
    At a vulnerable time families, especially the poorest, are pushed into 'death poverty'. It is not necessary as body disposal is not their responsibility. Funeral firms should be regulated and should provide a nationally standard statement to potential customers, making them aware they are not responsible for funerals. Local authorities should oversee this and provide statutory information about responsibilities for funerals. 'Many families left behind end up in debt as a result of funerals' according to the Independent. The average price for a cremation now stands at £3,596 and £4,561 for a burial. Prices are increasing at four times the rate of inflation. With unregulated operators, and local authorities keeping quiet about this, there is no compulsion for full disclosure to let families know they need not incur 'funeral poverty'.

  • Save our P99 school bus.
    This service enables parents to get their children to school safely, when they don't drive, need to go to work, or have mobility issues. It's also very environmentally friendly, it reduces pollution and traffic around schools, therefore easing congestion around Ilkley altogether. The kids love getting the bus, they have friends on the bus and feel a certain amount of independence getting the bus. It also encourages young people to use public transport later on in life.

  • No to Parking Charges in Cumnock
    East Ayrshire Council are proposing to remove the current Free Parking in Cumnock Town Centre, this would involve introducing 'New' charges within the Town's Car Parks and Streets around the Town Centre. The Proposals for Cumnock within the Council's Cabinet Report of the 27th February 2019 state: Cumnock - is the second largest settlement in East Ayrshire and it is the market town for a substantial part of the former coalfield area with an estimated catchment population of 35,000. The town continues to prosper from inward investment and a regeneration programme and there is an increase in tourism due to the Dumfries House attraction. On street parking is severely limited but the town centre is well served by car parks located at Townhead Street, Tanyard, Ayr Road and Glaisnock Street. There are currently no parking charges or time limits within the car parks and surveys indicate that the town centre car parks operate at or near capacity for significant periods of the day with a substantial amount of medium or long term parking which limits the opportunities for short stay parking to meet the needs of shoppers and the business community. The introduction of parking charges could create the desired turnover of spaces and reduce the amount of traffic circulating around the town centre in search of a place to park. PROPOSAL FOR ENGAGEMENT 5: That off street car parking charges should be introduced at the same rates as proposed for Kilmarnock for car parks in Ayr Road, Tanyard, Townhead Street and Glaisnock Street (Town Hall) in Cumnock. PROPOSAL FOR ENGAGEMENT 7: That on street car parking charges should be introduced at the same rates as proposed for Kilmarnock in Hamilton Place, The Square and Glaisnock Street Cumnock. The Council Report also shows that it would look to charge an Hourly Rate of £1.20 for Street Parking and £1 for the Car Parks. Tanyard would affect the Medical Centre, Townhead Street would affect Greenmill Primary School and the 'New' Shopping Centre with the Square also affecting the School. At a time when austerity is biting and the Council has raised Council Tax by 4% this year as well as raising Council Tenant's Rent these proposals are completely unacceptable and will have a detrimental economic effect within Cumnock. The Council is holding a Drop In event about their proposals at Cumnock Town Hall on Wednesday 10th April 2019 between 4pm and 8pm.

  • Bin the new bin collections
    This is important because this service is one of the few services left to Enfield residents. The so-called “consultation” conducted by the council revealed a majority of residents preferred to keep the bin collections as a weekly service rather than change it to bi-weekly with additional charges for garden waste.

  • Transparency for Benefit Claimants
    Giving claimants a copy of their assessment interviews is important. It provides them with vital personal information. It increases trust and transparency in the system. In the past Assessment Providers have not recorded interviews for either PIP (Personal Independence Payment) or WCA (Work Capacity Assessment). As a result, claimants have had no record of their assessment interviews. We welcome the Scottish initiative which allows audio recordings of ALL interviews. We therefore call upon the Government to require Assessment Providers to follow the Scottish model by: • recording both PIP and WCA assessment interviews • providing claimants with a copy of the recording with their decision letters This petition is sponsored by Stockport United Against Austerity

    The universal credit benifit system is a sham and is causing more and more people into poverty and in some cases loosing their homes. The whole system is flawed because its supposed to encourage people back into work, but the only thing it does is get people into debt and pay Lower amounts compared to any other benefits, so it only holds people over a barrel making them have no choice but to be pushed into work. Also the agreement you make in order to receive this benefit makes it highly likely for you to fail and be sanctioned eventually stopping the benefits all together. It needs to go and a better system and process needs to happen!!!

    The Permanent Secretary, Department of Finance has determined the pay remit for NI Civil Servants is 1%. This happened without consultation with Trade Unions and against a backdrop of year on year real term pay cuts of more than 7%. The Permanent Secretary, Department of Finance is the person who can change this.
