Opposition Lib Dem councillors are calling for more openness over controversial plans for a new cruise ship terminal in the city - which could be sited just yards from people's homes.
The Council's cabinet met this morning and agreed to press ahead with plans for a cruise ship terminal. One of the two potential sites is off the Victoria Dock housing area.
Sometime before the end of 2017 there will be a referendum to decide whether or not the UK stays in the EU.
Regardless of where you sit in the debate, it's obvious that the referendum will affect the futures of 16 and 17 year-olds, so what better time to reduce the voting age to 16?
At a meeting of Council next week Lib Dem councillors will call for the Council to sign up to the Living Wage.
The Living Wage, which is not the same a Minimum Wage, was set up over a decade ago to ensure that workers are paid enough to live on. Outside of London the Living Wage is currently set at £7.85.
Opposition Lib Dem councillors have been calling for the Council to adopt the Living Wage for some time.
Councillor Mike Ross has been announced as the new Leader of Hull City Council’s Lib Dem Group. Mike, who was previously Deputy Leader, replaces Councillor Abigail Bell.
Abigail Bell, Lib Dem group leader on Hull City Council, said:-
"The news of a last-minute change of Conservative candidate confirms what we already know – that the Conservatives are really out of the race in Hull West and Hessle. Any chance they had of improving their 2010 performance will no doubt have gone now.
“The facts speak for themselves. Of the 20 Hull and East Riding councillors in Hull West & Hessle, 10 are Labour and 9 are Lib Dems - there are no Conservative or UKIP local councillors anywhere in Hull West and Hessle constituency. Even last year, when the local elections were on the same day as the European Elections, UKIP were third and the Conservatives a distant 4th place across the constituency. If anyone can take on and beat Labour in this constituency – it’s the Lib Dems.
