·         None



Councillor Samia Chaudhary to ask Councillor Tom Bruce, Cabinet Member for Education and Children's Services

“Following the most recent inspection by HMIC (Her Majesty’s Inspectors of Constabulary) of the Metropolitan police, which highlighted "fundamental deficiencies in the way that the Metropolitan Police Service understands and responds to child abuse and sexual exploitation" in London, is the Cabinet Member able to tell us about any concerns or incidents that relate to Hounslow's young people? To what extent is the Cabinet Member concerned for the safety of Hounslow's young people?”



Councillor Peter Thompson to ask Councillor Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of the Council

"Could the Leader of the Council please explain why the 10th Feltham Scout Group have been served with a Section 25 Notice to quit their current site?" 


Councillor Gerald McGregor to Councillor Richard Foote, Lead Member for Communities

“Would the Cabinet Member for Communities please comment on the proposition that the Hogarth Youth Centre will be at risk of closure given the level of social deprivation, high degree of housing benefit and even higher level of free school meals for those members of the Chiswick Community who reflect a social and health deprivation index at the very lowest end of the scale and whose children and adolescent dependents rely heavily on the Youth Centre for social relief, guidance and leisure?”


Question from Councillor Sam Hearn to Councillor Kamaljit Kaur, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Health Services

“Would the Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Health Services confirm that administrative personnel without clinical qualifications are interfering with health reports that indicate a degree of care reliance with the end result that health cases are not being put forward for financial support?”


Proposed by Councillor Tom Bruce and Seconded by Councillor Sam Christie

“As part of the Government's plans to alter the way schools and education in Britain are funded, the second stage of the School's National Funding Formula consultation was published in December 2016. Although there have been some minor alterations to the original proposal, the core element remains the same: there will be a redistribution of current money, which for London means that some school budgets will increase, while the significant majority will reduce. This outcome will impact on Hounslow schools ability to maintain their high standards and quality of provision. Therefore, this council calls on the Government to fully and properly consider the impact the suggested reduction in funding will have on schools, and reaffirms its call on the Government to protect funding for schools in Hounslow and London.”


Any Other Matters That the Mayor Considers Urgent


Date of Next Meeting

The next meeting of the Council is scheduled for Tuesday 21st February 2017 and will commence at 7.30 pm in the Council Chamber
