Harrogate Feminists

Let’s hear it for a “nil” policy on SEV legislation!

Just wanting to draw people’s attention to Hackney Council, which is amongst a handful of councils proposing a “nil” policy on SEVs licensing.

They have even produced a leaflet explaining why they feel this policy would be appropriate to their particular borough. In particular they cite a vision to narrow inequalities within the borough – which, of course, should apply to all councils under the new Equalities Act 2010. They also mention their concerns about the pressures on its young people to engage in behaviour that might make them vulnerable to others – again, this is highly relevant to all boroughs, including Harrogate. They also produce several other good arguments for their policy.

We commend Hackney Council and the other Councils who are currently leading the way on this.
