There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
What would you like to know please?
Myself and a couple of other people have been putting together a campaign for a motion to be submitted to our local authority. we have now been informed that legally this is not possible. Please see link to the motion: http://www.bristol-libdems.org.uk/2014/04/lib-dems-submit-motion-on-somalilands-right-to-be-recognised-as-a-sovereign-state/
What is it you would like to know about this please?
can they legally evoke/remove it?
Remove the motion?
This is because this type of matter is not for Local Government
It is a Central Government issue, ie the Foreign Office or Home Office
Local Councils only have the power to govern locally
Not nationally and certainly not internationally
They can show their support, but that is about as far as it can go
how can we get the support at local level to influence what happens centrally
Local Councils simply do not have the power
You need to lobby your MP, not the local Council
Right idea, but wrong level of government
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
no i think it is pretty much clear
If this answers your question could I invite you leave feedback on my service which I hope has been excellent today, if you need more information or help then please click reply.
