East Lothian Council And Welfare Reform Mini-Dramas

EDM number 534 in 2013-14, proposed by Fiona O'Donnell on 08/10/2013.
Categorised under the topics of Benefits policy, Information technology, Media and Performing arts.

That this House congratulates East Lothian Council for producing a series of innovative mini-dramas on the Government's welfare reforms and making them widely available on social media outlets as part of its support for local residents affected by the reforms; believes that the four mini-dramas on debt crisis, fear of the future, downsizing and rent arrears, are an innovative and creative approach to communicating important messages to members of the public who are dealing with these difficult problems; commends the non-professional actors from East Lothian Tenants and Residents Association and Bridges Project, professional actors and council staff involved in making the films; and hopes that other local authorities can learn from this approach.

This motion has been signed by a total of 13 MPs.
