Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,
Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,
You recently responded to a direction from the Information Commissioner to a request for the Names of limited companies who had received the BIG fund grant.
What was revealed led to many legitimate questions.
You have answered a query regarding New Gaming Concept ltd which BIG award had raised legitimate questions re the appropriateness of the BIG award. Likewise another company, Corrin Kenny ltd received an award of BIG funds and subsequently in short order went into liquidation.
The speed of its subsequent liquidation, the fact that in the public domain its director has been disqualified as a director, the association of its director accompanying Council officers and councillors on trade-seeking missions in the Isle of Man, and potentially in Reno USA,and ,finall,y the studied denial by chief officers at an Audit and Risk Special committee of 8th October 2014, that no other than three companies had gone bust, not including Corrin Kenny ltd not indeed New Concept Gaming ltd, all suggest a breach of the rules governing BIG awards, or worse a potential criminal activity.
In that context, and in the context that a dissolved company has no privacy rights, I ask for the Grant application, the award papers and the email communications held by the Council on the BIG award to Corrin Kenny limited.
