Canterbury City Council Bill — Put Information on Street Trading Regulation on Website — Ensure Officers Using Powers Adequately Trained — 6 Feb 2013 at 19:45
Rehman Chishti MP, Gillingham and Rainham did not vote.
The majority of MPs voted to require Canterbury City Council to put information on its website about its powers and policies relating to the regulation of street trading and to require the council to ensure officers exercising powers under the Canterbury City Council Act are adequately trained.
The motion approved in this vote was:
- That this House agrees with Lords amendment C27
The C designates the amendment as relating to the Canterbury City Council Bill.
Lords amendment 27 introduced two new clauses; one titled Provision of information by the council and the other Training.
The provisions require the council to publish on its website information about its powers and enforcement policies relating to street trading and touting as well as to ensure council officers and police PCSOs using the powers under the provisions of the resultant Act are adequately trained for their role.
The aim of the Canterbury City Council Bill was to give Canterbury City Council better control of street trading and touting in the city of Canterbury.
