Anti-Semitism, increased tree cover and Swindon's commitment to the armed forces covenant will all be debated by councillors later today.

Those are the subjects of three of five motions to be put before members of Swindon Borough Council at their full meeting which starts at 7pm.

The other two motions concern carbon neutrality. Labour councillor Jane Milner-Barry, who is very concerned with environmental issues, will introduce a motion asking the Conservative administration to commit formally to making the entire borough  carbon neutral within 10 years.

At the same time, the council's cabinet member for strategic planning Gary Sumner will introduce a motion which: "commits the council to an 80 per cent reduction in the council`s corporate carbon emissions no later than 2030, with the aim of making the council’s estate and activities net-zero carbon by 2030."

The meeting starts at the council chamber in the Euclid Street civic offices.
