To receive the following Questions from:

Councillor M Voisey to the Cabinet Member Communities

 

Only 2 out of 10 speed and red-light cameras are working in the county borough, and how can this level of defects be allowed, and tolerated, and what is the Cabinet Member going to do about it?

 

Councillor T Thomas to the Cabinet Member Communities

 

What is the Council doing to ensure that the public are safe on County Borough roads and highways against the dichotomous threat of winter conditions and reduced resources from Covid 19?

 

Councillor A Hussain to the Leader and Cabinet Member Social Services and Early Help

 

In Wales, 60% of the adult population and 1 in 8 children age 4-5 years are overweight or obese and each year this figure is increasing. There is consistent evidence that obesity (excess weight) is associated with an increased COVID-19 risk in addition to the risk of diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, cancer and respiratory diseases which themselves increase the risk of complications in someone who contracts COVID-19. Knowing that excess weight is one of the few preventable risk factors for COVID-19, could the Leader let us know what measures he is taking to help those residents who are living with overweight or obesity to lose weight in a sustainable manner, together with interventions to prevent weight gain and reduce risk of COVID-19 in our Borough?

 

 

11.
