Liberal Democrat MP, Ed Davey, has been elected as the new leader of the Liberal Democrats today!
Commenting on the election of the new leader Cllr Mike Ross, Leader of Hull City Council Lib Dems said:
“We’re delighted to welcome Ed Davey as the new leader of the Liberal Democrats.
Hull's Lib Dem group has backed calls for next year's tournament to be played around the country, including here in Hull at the Kcom Stadium.
Lib Dem acting leader Ed Davey has called for the rescheduled Euro 2021 matches to be played in Hull and across the country rather than just at Wembley.
Plans have been revealed by Hull's Labour Council to build up to 650 houses on green fields behind Howdale Road (with access via Danby Close and East Carr Road).
This land was allocated for housing by the Labour Council in November 2017.
Labour councillors, including current Sutton Ward councillor Dave Craker, voted IN FAVOUR of allocating this land for housing. At the same meeting, they also voted AGAINST a proposal from opposition councillors to hold more public consultation. You can find the full minutes of that meeting here.
If Labour councillors hadn't voted to allocate this land for housing in 2017 then these current housing plans would never have happened.
Liberal Democrat Leaders on both the Hull and East Riding Council's have today written to the Chief Executives of both authorities to set up the region’s own localised Test and Trace system.
In their letter, Cllr Mike Ross and Cllr David Nolan ask the respective Chief Execs to work together to adopt this new Test and Trace local action model.
The three Liberal Democrat Holderness Ward Councillors have today written to Humberside Police's Chief Constable, Lee Freeman, to ask for his intervention in the on-going worries and concerns about crime in East Park
In their letter, Councillors Linda Tock, Jackie Dad and Kalvin Neal called on the intervention to put a stop to Anti-social behaviour in East Park. Their letter to Humberside Police's Chief Constable said that residents in the area who have reported major incidents have been ignored.
They go further and say "...there have been countless cases around the area in which calls have been made by local residents to the Antisocial behaviour team that has not made it to our local policing team."
