    As we approach the 50th anniversary of the Garvagh bombing, it is felt that this would be an appropriate time to pause, 
    remember and pay tribute. I call upon this council to place a fitting and permanent memorial on or near the Garvagh 
    War memorial to all who served and to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. 24 Platoon E company (Garvagh Detachment),
    5th County Londonderry Battalion, The Ulster Defence Regiment (Conspicuous Gallantry Cross) 1970 — 1992 and a plaque at 
    bridge street Garvagh the site of the bombing.

15. Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor McMullan, seconded by Councillor Peacock
    This council recognises the significant investment in rural communities and businesses, and the wider economy
    derived from the Single Farm Payment under the EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP); agrees that CAP Single 
    Farm Payments were critical to farm profitability, particularly for small family farms; is concerned with the 
    significant uncertainty facing our farming community with the loss of CAP Single Farm Payments as a result 
    of Brexit and the end of the replacement Basic Payment Scheme, worth £300m a year, beyond 2025; and calls on 
    the British Government and the Minister of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs to set out urgently 
    what replacement funds will be put in place to support our farmers and the wider agricultural sector.
