Ferris Wheel And The Homeless

EDM number 81 in 1996-97, proposed by Jeremy Corbyn on 28/10/1996.

That this House is depressed that Lambeth Council has granted planning permission for a 500 foot giant ferris wheel on the South Bank of the Thames; believes it to be an eyesore and totally inappropriate for that site; is further concerned that vast amounts of money are being expended on millennium projects of dubious or no value when the over-riding priority should be to ensure a roof over the head of everyone; accordingly calls upon the Government to halt the ferris wheel project and ensure that the resources allocated for it are directed to the needs of the homeless and poorly housed.

This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs, 2 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
