The question I put to Labour Merton Council:
From Councillor David Dean to the Cabinet Member for Finance: In light of the impending roll out of 5G can the Cabinet Member confirm whether there are any functioning 5G antennas on Merton Council buildings, what future plans does the council have with regard to placing 5G antennas in the public realm, what data and research has been used to verify the safety of 5G, and will the Cabinet Member commit to a public consultation before 5G is rolled out further? (Clearly I disagree with the answer below)
Reply From Cllr Mark Allison, Labour Cabinet Member for Finance responded: Merton Council has had a contract in place with Arqiva (Virgin Media) since 2015 to enable the roll-out of wifi and 4G small cell transmitters. This allows Arqiva to pay to install equipment on Merton assets such as lamp posts. The contract also allows for 5G equipment to be installed however there are no immediate plans for this to be carried out on Merton assets. The nationwide improvement to telecommunications, which includes the move to 5G, is led by the private sector and governed by national planning policy.
Public Health England have indicated that there are no adverse health impacts. The Council is not planning to consult locally on adopted National Government planning policy which is consistent with public health advice. In addition, we are very anxious about those who are irresponsibly spreading misinformation about 5G by, for instance, recommending EMF blocking paint and scaremongering about health risks. It is highly inappropriate for public figures to speculate with no scientific basis about the effects of introducing 5G, as the radio waves that deliver mobile phone signals are non-ionizing and are therefore unable to change cell structures, meaning there can be no impact on human health.

Subject: Fw: Moving forward after the ‘5G and Me’ meeting, dates for your diary, useful 5G info
Hi,
Thanks again for coming to the ‘5GandMe’ meeting at St Mark’s Church on Monday the 24th of June.
First things first- If you haven’t already done so, please sign and ask all you know to get behind this entirely reasonable statement ‘Postpone the rollout of 5G in the UK, pending further independent investigation.’ here : https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/262842
It would be good to connect again to chat about what we can do moving forward….so:
1.  Thursday 11th July 7:00 pm – The Sultan Pub, 78 Norman Road, Wimbledon, London, SW19 1BT in the upstairs meeting room
Let’s meet again:
  • An approach to raising awareness and bringing up the topic with those who are new to it or those who seem disinterested
  • What’s next?
  • Getting to know one another
 2.  Wednesday 10th July 7:15pm – Civic Centre Council Meeting – Council chamber,  Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden SM4 5DX
10th July 7:15pm Council chamber – Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden SM4 5DX

3.  Saturday 13th July 7:30pm-10pm – 5G AWARENESS-RAISING EVENT – Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London, WC1R 4RL
Jimmy Elderflower who came to the meeting in Wimbledon is also organising am meeting, he’s even got some live music and performance lined up, details are here:
4. Saturday 28th September 9am – EM Radiation Research Trust Conference – 44 Hallam Street W1W 6JJ
This may be of interest, the expertise that has been brought together is impressive to say the least:
It’s an all day event with lunch included.
Global experts share the latest science on the health effects of radio frequency and low frequency such as is used for mobile phones, WiFi and 5G
Speakers:
Dr Devra Davis, Founder of Environmental Health Trust
Professor Lennart Hardell  (Sweden)
Dr Erica Mallery Blythe
Dr Ron Melnick (USA, National Toxicology Program- conducted the biggest most comprehensive study of EMR and health over 14 years)
Professor Martin Pall (USA)
Dr Peter Ohnsorge
Dr Dimitris Panagopoulos (Greece)
Dr Sarah Starkey
Brian Stein CBE
Dr Andrea Vornoli (Italy, Ramazzini Institute)
