The following written questions have been received from Members:


1)    Councillor Childs – Remembrance Service


It was disappointing that the Green-run City Council did not send a Councillor delegate to attend and lay a reef at the Rottingdean Remembrance Service and that only Labour Councillors and MPs were present. What action can be taken to ensure that the City Council sends representatives to the main remembrance services next year to pay respects, on behalf of the City, to those men, women and animals who made sacrifices, including losing their lives, fighting for our freedom and democracy?


2)    Councillor Childs – Library Services


Since the previous Green administration closed the mobile library service, there has been insufficient library provision in the Kemp Town, Queens Park and Hanover areas of our city. What action will the Council take to address this gap in such a vital service?


3)    Councillor Childs – Anti-Social Behaviour on Steine Street


What action will the Council take to address the parlous state of Steine Street and the anti-social behaviour that affects residents and businesses of this street?

4)    Councillor Evans – Brighton Christmas Market


During December I received several letters and calls, backed up by literally hundreds of comments on social media, expressing severe disappointment with the Christmas Market. Most complaints related either to the low number of stalls and poor variety of goods on sale, or to difficulty accessing the site, surrounded as it was by hoardings and with security limiting entrance to only one corner of the large site. Since we agreed a deal with the same operator for both 2022 & 2023, will there be any opportunity for officers & committee members to examine and question the perceived problems and try to ensure a better offer to the public next Christmas?
