    At the council meeting on 25 April the Conservatives but forward a motion to get improvements made to mobile phone coverage in Canterbury. All well and good you may say. But why wait until a few days before the election to put forward this plan?

    The Conservative then went on to talk about and to promote 5G which has a couple of important question marks attached to it. 5G is military grade weaponised technology that can also be used for crowd control. It relies on a high frequency focused signal that may be harmful to both people and wildlife. 5G is also technically linked to HUAWEI, a Chinese company about which many in government have serious security concerns. Given these reservations, Lib Dem Cllrs Nick Eden-Green and Michael Dixey said the motion should be amended to ensure that people in Canterbury are at least consulted before any plans go ahead.

    The Conservatives block voted the amendment down. Once more they displayed their utter refusal to consult with local people.

    After the meeting Nick said, 'I'm not saying better mobile coverage isn't wanted or that 5G is or is not the answer. But it is controversial and on any issue of this sort we absolutely must consult before we take action. That was all my amendment sought to do. Once more the Conservatives refuse to engage, or even talk to local people.'

    Tomorrow the Council's P&R comittee meet to debate the Lib Dem motion on climate. The motion chimes very much with our manifesto commitment to put the environment at the heart of everything we do. Environmental issues are also part of other sections of our manifesto such as the section on transport entitled "Getting us moving" or on "Housing and Homes".

The report proposed establishing three acute stroke units in Ashford, Maidstone and Darenth with each centre able to treat around 1500 patients a year. This would also have included building a new department in Ashford at a cost of 20 million pounds.
