To consider questions from Members of the Council of which notice has been given under Council Procedure Rule 14.

Question One

 

From Cllr Jordan Meade, Leader of the Opposition – to Cllr John Burden, Leader of the Executive

 

Today marks nearly a year since this Council unanimously committed to signing the Social Mobility Pledge and entwining the theme of social mobility throughout everything that we do. Due to the pandemic, unemployment is now at a three-year high and redundancies are all too commonplace, especially amongst young people. 


Could the Leader of the Executive therefore provide us with an update on the progress that this authority has made in encouraging social mobility, with particular reference to apprenticeships, work placements and the Kickstart Scheme.

 

Question Two

 

From Cllr Steve Thompson – to Cllr John Burden, Leader of the Executive

 

It is welcome news that Highways England have withdrawn their application for the Lower Thames Crossing.  This Council has worked hard to get the scheme cancelled, or at least significantly changed to remove the damage to the environment but has this view been supported by the other Councils in Kent and who originally promoted this location?
