Please indicate the individual initiatives attributable to their trips and their equivalent value
[2] According to FOI information/ council docs, Cllr Gary Millar has been to the Far East ten times, promoting Liverpool as a place to invest. What was the total cost of:
* Flights and all other transport costs for these trips
* Hotels and all other miscellaneous expenditure for these trips
[3] Please indicate if LCC paid for Cllr Millar’s trip on the Cunard QM2 - Liverpool / Canada/New York city. May 2016

[6] Did Parr St Studios invoice LCC Invest Liverpool or NPG Ltd and or its agents for this meeting/event
[7] Did Cllr Millar receive any gifts for letting NPG or its agents hire Parr St Studios?

Gary Millar was invited by Jon Egan to attend part of the consultation process for New Chinatown. It was hosted by the architects, with members of the Chinese community (including the Liverpool Chinese Business Association) and took place at the New China Restaurant, Berry St on 10th July 2015. He was asked to attend as Chair-elect of the Chinatown Forum.
[8] Did Ellen Cutler or any other individual from Liverpool Invest attend?

Cllr Gary Millar said he was not a figurehead for North Point Global and had never "pushed", or "endorsed" their business? In that case:
[10] Could Cllr Gary Millar please explain why there is extensive photographic evidence of himself with Peter McInnes/North Point Global and Samson Law/Hong Kong Homes. There is one image with the three of them holding hands and a further image with them all pointing to Cllr Gary Millar’s name on a screen, which also had Liverpool City Council’s logo on it.
[11] Could Cllr Gary Millar please explain why there is no photographic evidence of him with any other developer during his promotional trips to China/Hong Kong?

{12} Can the LCC explain as to why [potentionally defamatory material removed] to the investors or try to explain why he told them to buy into Chinatown and [potentially defamatory material removed]?
Or is [name removed] saying these are untrue and the investors are telling lies?
