The latest in an exchange of letters between the Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP (Minister for Housing, Communities and Local Government) and Cllr Phil Davies (Leader of Wirral Council) has been published.

Environment Overview and Scrutiny Committee 7th December 2018 Part 2 of 2

Below is Cllr Phil Davies’ reply sent yesterday to the letter, followed by two attachments. The matter was also discussed by councillors yesterday at a regular public meeting of the Environment Overview and Scrutiny Committee (although councillors and the public present were handed out the reply and two attachments at the start of that agenda item rather than the start of the meeting which left little opportunity for it to be read in detail or scrutiny).
