14Motion

A notice of motion submitted in accordance with Standing Order 29 is set out below. Motions that refer to matters within the remit of the Executive, or Education Executive, will stand referred to the appropriate body, without discussion, unless:-

(1) special circumstances exist which, in opinion of the Provost (having consulted with the Council Leader and the Leader of the main Opposition groups) requires an exception to be made;

(2) two thirds of the members present vote in favour of the matter being discussed; or

(3) the motion raises an issue with significant impact on the Council area which the Provost, having consulted with the Leader of the Council and the Leaders of the main Opposition groups, considers suitable for debate at Council.

The motion below stands referred to the Executive unless otherwise determined by the Provost, having consulted with the Leader of the Council and the Leader of the Opposition:-

That the Council supports Poppyscotland's Count Them in Campaign which aims to see the inclusion of an Armed Forces question in the next census in 2021. There is currently very limited information about where our veterans now live and what support they may need. Gathering this information through the census will allow for an improved understanding of this unique community and ensure that the Council, alongside others, can ensure we are fully meeting the needs of our serving personnel, veterans and their families.

The Chief Executive to write to the relevant Minister and to Poppyscotland, local constituency and regional MSP's within the Falkirk Council area to inform them of the Council's support for the inclusion of an Armed Forces question in the next census in 2021.

Proposed by Provost Buchanan
