Shortsands Residential Home, St Neots

EDM number 183 in 1991-92, proposed by Jeff Rooker on 18/11/1991.

That this House notes that the proposal to close Shortsands Residential Home for the elderly at St. Neots, Huntingdon, was taken in the Social Services Committee of Cambridgeshire County Council on the casting vote of the Chair; is aware that six Conservative town councillors in St. Neots have resigned from the Conservative Party over the proposed closure; regrets that no commitment has been given that resources released by the closure of the badly-maintained home will be used to restore the lost places in other residential care in the town of St. Neots and that residents will be moved far away from friends, relatives and the place they know as home; demands that the Conservative-controlled Cambridgeshire County Council appreciate that Care in the Community means more than railroading through closures of residential homes against the wishes of local people; and therefore calls upon all Right honourable and honourable Members representing the County of Cambridgeshire to agree to meet the Save Our Shortsands Committee, which they have so far refused to do.

This motion has been signed by a total of 62 MPs.
