[1] Please confirm the date of Cllr Kris Brown’s involvement into his new investigation was it after his statement on ITV Granada Reports (6 pm 24th May 2019 ) at the site known as Fox Street Village or many weeks before?

[2] Please supply all FOI’s sent into the council from the lead investigations at the Liverpool Echo and Cllr Brown, who has investigated for 2 years the failed sites in Liverpool according to Joe Thomas and Alistair Houghton?

[3] Chinatown, Pall Mall, Quadrant, Paramount, Baltic house, Berry house, etc have these reporters interviewed any members of your staff over the last 2 years on these sites?

[4] Will the council please supply the planning application paperwork on the site -Known as “St James Court”

Reference: Luxury £30m apartment complex set for Baltic Triangle, this was published by Liverpool Senior Reporter, Josh Parry 23th May 2016.

[4a] Will the council supply the persons and the planning application, and did this senior reporter check his details with the council or the planning officers or Roger Mann as to this being real and not just another scam?

[5] Has the council had any dealing with Richard Caton and or Carl Mills or Developers Pinnacle Alliance, with the planning application of St James Court in 2015/16?

[6] If your reply is no, then could the Liverpool council please try to explain just how a reporter from the Liverpool echo could just wake up one day and publish a story on a building that the council knows nothing about, and did anyone from the council legal team question “Josh Parry” as to how he took information from “Richard Caton and Tony Freeman” a convicted con artist?

[7] So after the investigation into these failed sites has the Liverpool echo uncovered any of the missing funds and or helped the buyers get any refunds, has the council got any back payments as 106 fees due to the investigation by the Liverpool Echo, has the Liverpool echo uncovered the number of bent solicitors and the accountants behind this ongoing scam, that took place worldwide and in the UK? Has both the Liverpool council and the Liverpool echo been in contact with the NCA and the SFO to pass over any of the information you both must have collected

Yours faithfully,

Ms Wilson AIG Group Liverpool
