Royal Marines and Royal Navy Service Cuts

Councillor Younger-Ross to move:

 

This Council notes the announcement of the First Sea Lord, Admiral Sir Philip Jones to cut the Royal Marines by 200 personnel.

 

This Council further notes that these cuts are to be made to transfer funds to other parts of the Navy.

 

This Council recognises the important roll the Royal Marines play in defence of the UK. That they are a world class fighting force, providing a fast, flexible and mobile force and that members of the Royal Marines  make up nearly 50% of our elite fighting forces such as the SAS and SBS.

 

This Council is proud of the association Devon has with both the Royal Navy and the Royal Marines.

 

This Council is concerned that these cuts will have a detrimental effect on the defensive capabilities of the UK and calls upon the Council Leader to make representations to the Government to reconsider these proposed cuts to the Marines and to look at the priorities for the Royal Navy and how it is to be funded.

16.

NHS in Devon - Public Enquiry

Councillor Greenslade to move:

 

‘While applauding the care provided by all our NHS medical staff the County Council is concerned at the current state of the NHS in Devon, the impact the NHS “Success Regime” is having and studies suggesting many GP’s will be retiring, being examples of areas for concern.

 

Accordingly the County Council agrees to establish a local public inquiry to consider the state of the NHS in Devon’.
