This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Liverpool City Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Liverpool City Council,

1. The June 2018 Register of Interests showed that Mayor Joe Anderson’s daughter, Cllr Joanne Calvert, was Senior PR Assistant with Daniel Hughes PR Agent. Please advise the date on which Cllr Calvert started this position and the date on which it ceased (as there is no corresponding entry in the July 2019 Register).

2. Please advise whether Cllr Calvert was employed by Daniel Hughes PR so that income tax etc was deducted and remitted under PAYE or whether this was work she carried out on a self employed basis.

3. Daniel Hughes PR worked on the Fox Street Village development in Everton, where the director of the companies behind that unfinished development was Gary Howard. Information available via the Companies House website clearly shows Gary Howard’s involvement with other failed developers Elliot Lawless (via 1Dom Ltd) and Kerry Tomlinson (via Fox Street Village Ltd, St Cyprians Student Halls Ltd etc).

(a) Was Cllr Calvert aware that by working with Daniel Hughes PR and Gary Howard she was effectively also linked to both Elliot Lawless and Kerry Tomlinson?

(b) Did Cllr Calvert meet with:

(i) Gary Howard or

(ii) Elliot Lawless or

(iii) Kerry Tomlinson

4. Was the Mayor, Joe Anderson, aware of his daughter’s connection with these three developers who have been responsible for a number of unfinished developments across the City?

Yours faithfully,

J. Dickerson
