Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,
The Capita Symonds report November 2006 says at "INTRODUCTION" para 1.1.3 page 9
"The competitions [Open] return to Wirral is prestigious for the Council and will bring with it significant economic benefits."

1. What were those economic benefits, please?

2. How far did the benefits extend into neighbouring Wards?

2. For how long did they last?

3. What benefit does West Kirby and the surrounding Wards receive from it in this current financial year?

Yours faithfully,

John H Hutchinson

Dalton, Chelsea, Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council
