This statement was added by Nicola Shani Nugent, their team, or by a Democracy Club volunteer, based on information published by the candidate elsewhere.
Hope Not Hate, a London-based charity, canvassed local residents and community organisations to establish the following questions to the candidates in this ward.
How will you improve the refuse collection?
Refuse overflow is an unsanitary and unsightly problem. We would provide larger wheelie bins to help address these issues. Hackney and Bow have a 'one bag' recycling collection. This was virtually foolproof, easy and convenient. This will increase participation in recycling and we would introduce this service for all residents.
How will you improve health care services for the elderly and young families?
We will provide better care and activities for our older, younger and disabled residents by bringing back social care into direct council control. We will work closely with the Primary Care Trust (NHS) to ensure services are right for our residents and their requirements.
Should 16 years olds have the right to vote? Please elaborate on your answer.
Yes. In accordance with Green Party Policy the voting age for all elections, and the age at which people may take seats at any level of Government, would be reduced to 16. At 16, everyone should be able to vote. They can drive a moped so why can’t they vote. Younger people are more in tune with the environment too and voting at 16 gives them the opportunity to have a say in shaping their future.
