City Council Meeting (Liverpool City Council) 21st July 2021 Part 4 of 4 (ACC Liverpool Group)

As you can see from the two video clips above, councillors were told that Liverpool City Council owned the Arena and Convention Centre Liverpool. Liverpool City Council also solely owns the company ACC Liverpool Group Limited that runs the Convention Centre.

The latest accounts of the company state, “The support from the parent undertaking, Liverpool City Council, is committed under the terms of the management agreement between the Company and Liverpool City Council. The management agreement states Liverpool City Council shall pay the Company (when properly required by the Company) such sums as are necessary to meet expenditure properly incurred in accordance with the relevant budget by the Council, in excess of revenue received by the company from its own account.”

The votes have been counted in the Liscard byelection. Liscard voters elected a councillor to Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council.

Daisy Marie Kenny (Labour) was elected with 1,137 votes. The votes for the other candidates were Jane Helen Owens (Conservative) 582 votes, Sue Arrowsmith (Liberal Democrats) 201 votes, Edward John Lamb (Green Party) 109 votes, Lynda Ellen Williams (Independent) 68 votes and Gary Bergin (The For Britain Movement) 26 votes.

The percentage of votes each candidate received can be read on Wirral Council’s website.

There were 5 rejected ballot papers.

Out of 11,399 people registered to vote, there were 2,128 ballot papers issued (2,123 votes plus 5 rejected ballot papers) which gives a turnout figure of 19%.

As Daisy Marie Kenny was elected in a byelection which was caused by the resignation of Sarah Spoor, she is elected to serve the remainder of Sarah Spoor’s term of office. Sarah Spoor was elected in 2019 for a 4 year term of office, so Daisy Marie Kenny is elected to May 2023.
