Question Time

All the Council Party Group Leaders (5 in total) took part in a BBC-style 'Question Time' earlier this morning, organised by the Edinburgh Association of Community Councils (EACC) ...

... enjoyable couple of hours, with good questions and a healthy debate between the panel and the audience.

Out of interest, the main topics raised were:
  • Neighbourhood Partnerships
  • Fairer Scotland Fund (FSF)
  • Political Party Branches being allowed (or not) to put themselves forward as 'Nominated Interest Groups' for Community Councils
  • 'Tendering/Outsourcing' of Council services
  • possible pedestrianisation of Princes Street
  • and yes, Trams!

Off to Bridgend Community Allotment open-day now ...
