A request has been made for Leeds City Council members to investigate the impacts of new 5G wireless internet technology.
It follows a request concerning the possible health impacts of the new mobile technology, claiming “numerous instances” of evidence regarding its dangers are becoming available.
The request from the unnamed member of the public states: “I hereby request a scrutiny investigation into harmful effects of 5G technology before any decisions are made to roll it out in Leeds.
“Numerous instances of evidence regarding its dangers are now becoming available and I would like a full investigation before any deployment in the Leeds area.’’
The member of the public also provided additional information to the committee which claims 5G will: “substantially increase exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) on top of the 2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, etc. for telecommunications already in place.”
