What was Cllr Phil Davies’ answer to a question about Hoylake Golf Resort and air pollution from a member of the public at the Birkenhead Constituency Committee?
Following an earlier story on this blog What happened at the Birkenhead Constituency Committee public meeting held at the Wirral Deen Centre on the 1st March 2018?, I notice there have been an unusually high number of views (192 views) for the video clip of the first part of that meeting which is below (with viewers mainly from the UK but a small amount of views from Morocco). The video was also used in a Wirral Leaks post Seen at the Deen.

Looking at it in greater detail, there are certain sections of that clip that attract more attention than others.
There are two peaks in interest, one around the 25:35 point and one around the 39:15 point.
The 25:35 point is Cllr Phil Davies (Leader of Wirral Council) answering a question. The 39:15 point is Sergeant Katie Wilkinson (Merseyside Police) talking.
The question (asked by a member of the public) that Cllr Phil Davies is answering at the 25:35 point, starts at 24:22 and is as follows:
Cllr Moira McLaughlin (Vice-Chair): I think, I think that question has been answered already.
Cllr Phil Davies: Well, I’m quite happy to answer the, the the the bit, the issue about the Golf Resort. Errm, an environmental impact assessment is one of the key studies that we’re doing as part of the feasibility for the next stage and that will cover the area the issue of air pollution.
So I think, these are independent studies, not funded by the Council, funded by the developer, that will be made available to the public for scrutiny and for challenge.
