Motion text

That this House recognises the offence caused to local communities by graffiti in their environment; notes the difficulty in removing graffiti without the application of graffiti repellent paint to buildings and street furniture; calls on the Government to give local authorities more powers to insist on anti-graffiti paint being applied to buildings and street furniture owned by private organisations such as telephone companies, bus companies and owners of poster sites; and calls on private organisations to work together with local authorities to ensure that anti-graffiti coatings are applied to public telephone boxes, telephone switching boxes, bus shelters, bus stops and other street furniture.
