In light of intimidation against public servants, R4U has raised an anti-harassment motion at Uttlesford District Council that was approved by the vast majority of councillors. The motion resolved the council to take more affirmative action to protect those that serve the public, including more proactive working with the police.
R4U’s Cllr Lees continued “To try to curb this, R4U raised an anti-harassment motion at UDC to resolve the council to take stronger action, including with the police, to protect staff and elected representatives. The motion, which was approved, was seconded by the Conservatives, and supported by the Independents and Liberal Democrats; it was regrettable that the Green councillors didn’t give their support. It is positive that the resolution passed by a huge majority, but disappointing that these issues need to be considered at all.”
