To consider the following Motions in accordance with Council Rules of Procedure No. 13 pdf icon PDF 284 KB

Motion D 2018/19

Proposer: Cllr Morris

Seconder: Cllr da Costa

Council notes:

  1. The invocation of Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union on March 29 2017 with the result that the UK is due to leave the European Union on March 29 2019
  2. That at the time of submission, no agreement has been reached on a post-exit relationship between the UK and the EU
  3. That the Greater London Assembly along with the London Boroughs of Merton, Richmond and Hammersmith & Fulham have all passed motions endorsing a People’s Vote

Council further notes:

  1. The likely negative economic and fiscal impacts of Brexit

                i.    The Government’s internal analysis of Brexit concluded that output would be hurt under every scenario modelled and could reduce the UK’s economic output by 8%.

               ii.    The Centre for European Reform estimates that as of June 2018, the UK’s public finances were £23 billion a year (or £440 million a week) worse off than they would have been without the possibility of Brexit

  1. The likely negative impact of Brexit on public sector recruitment. For example, the Nuffield Trust estimates that an interruption to migration from the EU could lead to a shortfall of as many as 70,000 social care workers by 2025/26
  2. That an estimated 54,000 Haringey residents are nationals of another EU member state. This represents almost a fifth of the borough’s population
  3. That Haringey voted 75.6% to 24.4% to remain in the 2016 referendum. The fifth highest in the country
  4. That a People’s Vote has now been endorsed by:

                i.    The Members of Parliament for Hornsey & Wood Green and Tottenham

               ii.    Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London

              iii.    Francis O’Grady, President of the Trade Union Congress

              iv.    The Royal College of Nursing, Prospect, the GMB, Community, the TSSA and the British Medical Association

               v.    The leaders of the Liberal Democrats and the Green Party

              vi.    The National Union of Students

             vii.    Over 300,000 individuals who have signed the petition for a People’s Vote

Council believes:

  1. That the post-Brexit arrangements currently being put forward would leave the UK worse off than if it remained an EU member state
  2. That as a result, they would harm the welfare of Haringey residents and the population of the UK as a whole
  3. That the loss of the benefits of UK membership of the EU will adversely affect the Council’s ability to provide services to the residents of Haringey
  4. That the Brexit vote has created justified anxiety amongst citizens of the EU27 countries residing in Haringey, and throughout the UK; and that the government has not taken sufficient steps to reassure them

Council believes in light of this:

  1. That the final say on Britain’s future relationship with the EU should be made by the people not politicians

Council resolves:

  1. To support the call for a People’s Vote on any final Brexit deal with an option to remain in the EU; and therefore
  2. Ask the leader of the Council to contact the People’s Vote campaign to communicate Council’s support
  3. That in  ...  view the full agenda text for item 6.
