"I was born and educated in London, a Freeman of the City of London I moved to Maidstone in 1974.

"I first became involved in local politics in 1985, during the successful fight to save playing fields in Allington. Five years later I became a Maidstone Borough Councillor in and in 2001 I was elected a County Councillor.

"I am very involved with my local community as President of Maidstone Winds - Maidstone's premier wind orchestra, and a Trustee of three local Charities:

"I have a great love of nature and do everything possible to protect the most beautiful and precious parts of our natural heritage: for example, much improving the local green environment through the provision of more street trees and the maintenance of those which already form part of the highway fringes."

    The news that both GP practices in Allington are to be closed at the end of May, due to the retirement of both the doctors, has been greeted with dismay by your councillors.

    County Councillors, Dan Daley and Rob Bird are pressing the West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group (WKCCG), which is responsible for this provision, to tell us soon what their plans are to maintain this primary care close to residents in Allington. We are heavily critical of the Commissioners for not having dealt with the situation sooner and better.

    Statement by Liberal Democrat County Councillors Rob Bird, Ian Chittenden & Dan Daley

    The many Maidstone commuters who travel to London each day are incensed by the news that the new Thameslink service has once more been delayed, for a further year until December 2019.

    While other counties continue to benefit from new railways investment and are given priority, West Kent has once again shunted into a siding.

    "The NHS is in a serious state": that is the headline in many newspapers these days - and unfortunately this is only too obvious.

    It would seem that no matter how much money is pumped into this most precious public asset, it is never enough and that quite routine services even now are being scaled back; important operations postponed; prescriptions of some essentials being no longer supplied, Accident and Emergency departments closed and amalgamated, etc.

    "How many Kent County Council employees and how many councillors have had their emails monitored in each of the past 3 years and for what purpose?"

    Answer

    To ensure the security and safety of the KCC network, there is continual electronic monitoring of the e-mail system.

    In terms of individuals' accounts, between 2013 and 2015, over the past 3 years, KCC has monitored 108 employee accounts. There have been no requests to monitor any Members' email accounts.

    With an apparently increasing likelihood of the Ebola virus eventually coming to the British Isles, would the Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care & Public Health please advise what preparations KCC's Public Health team have already made or are making for the immediate containment of any case - or epidemic in Kent - should this sadly come to pass.

    Will the Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Public Health inform the Council how many users have taken Direct Payments since the new contractors have been in place, and how this has affected staffing levels in the department responsible for assessment and in the processing of invoices?

    Answer

    There were 6100 people who were receiving home care arranged by the council when the new Domiciliary Contract came into effect. As part of this, all of those who were affected by the changes were reminded of their right to ask for Direct Payment instead of services. As of 28 August, 1694 of these people had expressed an interest in finding out more about Direct Payments. Of the 559 who have progressed to a detailed assessment, 376 have chosen to go on to take a Direct Payment.
