“Council notes the hardship caused by the introduction of Personal Independence Payments and calls on the Department for Communities to take immediate steps to ensure that applicants for these payments are not left without money for unacceptable periods of time; that they are afforded dignity and respect at assessments and where they fall short of the points needed to qualify they are given every assistance and advice to source additional medical information deemed necessary to make a decision in their favour. Furthermore, this council calls for additional support for applicants who are compelled to go to appeal or their PIP payments.”

17.  Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor Mulholland, seconded by Councillor Chivers

18.  Notice of Motion proposed by Alderman Finlay, seconded by Councillor Fielding

“Whereas this council, Causeway Coast and Glens, recognises the vital significance of Bombardier Aerospace, formerly Shorts, for the Northern Ireland economy, with four thousand three hundred workers directly employed and a further twenty thousand employed indirectly in the supply chain or through induced economic activity; we express our profound concern at the threat posed to these jobs by the recent protectionist judgements by the US International Trade Commission which effectively placed a 300% surcharge on the C Series aircraft in an attempt to close the US market; it is resolved to express our full solidarity with the workforce and company at this time of trial and propose to write directly to the Prime Minister Theresa May MP to request that the government make it known to Boeing that if they do not withdraw their case then they will be excluding themselves from UK Procurement opportunities both current and future; it is further resolved to write to the European Trade Commissioner to request an immediate escalation through existing trade disputes mechanisms.”
