Virtual Cabinet meeting

On Wednesday, Newham Council held its first, totally virtual Cabinet meeting. Usually Cabinet meetings are held in public but due to COVID-19 the government has allowed Councils to hold "virtual" meetings instead.  We have held virtual Cabinet meetings before Wednesday but had the minimum quorum of 3 cabinet members physically present (but maintaining social distance) in case technology failed and meeting had to be cancelled. The meeting was also published live on Facebook.

Amongst a number of items there was a comprehensive report on our response as a Council to the COVID-19 emergency and I was pleased that we agreed to invest in yet another social housing scheme, spending £35.3 million at the Brickyard scheme in East Ham.

Blimey, I am now getting anonymous calls for Christian Church bell ringing to be banned. Must be a Hitler worshipping cultist.
