Part one: Refurbishment of The Irish Centre Liverpool £8m

The request was successful.

Dear Liverpool City Council,

Refurbishment of The Irish Centre

Two years ago, as part of the ECHO’s relaunched Stop The Rot campaign, it stated that the the Irish Centre in Mount Pleasant was the focus of an ambitious £8m development plan which aimed to keep " talented graduates in the city." Could you please explain:

[1] Just why and how would this very overpriced ambitious £8m project keep talented graduates in the city?

NB - [The two University's have questioned this remark as misleading and could not understand how the graduates could or would benefit from this at all?]

Echo quote: "But although progress has appeared slow, we can reveal these proposals are still on track – major repair work is finally set to begin, and a funding application made to hopefully ensure the development plans become a reality."

[2] . Which LCC individual supplied the Liverpool Echo with this information

[3]Who will be doing the major repair work?

[4] Who will be funding it & how much is it going to cost?

[5] Had Cllr Ann O'Byrne within the last 4 weeks had approval from any funding body in relation to the Irish Centre

Yours faithfully,
