    112.9      Councillor Gibson thanked the Mayor and stated that it had been a good and useful debate overall. He felt that although a number of the amendments could not be accepted, there were a lot of good suggestions that could be taken into consideration and possibly incorporated into future decisions.

    112.10   The Mayor stated that in view of the fact that the amendments related to either the General Fund or the Housing revenue Account, he intended to put each one to the vote.  However, he would call on the Acting Chief Finance Officer to confirm the budgetary position should any amendment be carried and have an impact on the overall budget as necessary.  He would then put the substantive recommendations to the vote as outlined in the procedural rules and also noted that the outcome of the voting would be recorded in full.
