Christopher Watts

Dear Gwillam Lloyd (Head of Highway Management),

I have received today an Eastcott Focus leaflet (February 2011 edition) from the local Lib Dems that states:

"Labour Nearly Wrecks 2nd Crossing

...this time they [Labour] nearly wrecked the campaign for a second Kingshill Crossing. Cllr Stan Pajak said, "Labour's candidate went in like a bull in a china shop and likely made the council dig its heels in, undoing months of influence and persuasion. We must not let Labour's party political point-scoring wreck the crossing campaign for another generation.""

Please can you answer the following questions:

1. Please could you supply me with details of any contact that you have had from Chris Watts with regards to the second Kingshill Road crossing. This request should cover any written or email communications, particularly the time and date, and any transcripts or recordings if you have them.

2. Please could you supply me with details of any contact that you have had from Chris Watts that have caused you to "dig your heals in" with regards to your decision making process that could be detrimental to the second Kingshill crossing cause. This request should cover any written or email communications, particularly the time and date, and any transcripts or recordings if you have them.

3. Please could you supply me with details of any contact that you have had from Chris Watts that may have caused you to disregard "months of influence and persuasion" with regards the second Kingshill crossing cause. This request should cover any written or email communications, particularly the time and date, and any transcripts or recordings if you have them.

Yours faithfully,

Christopher Watts
