“He asked Mr Poots to ‘detail any representations'”

In the Belfast Telegraph David Gordon notes that the Green Party’s Brian Wison, MLA, has tabled some questions about potential DUP lobbying on behalf of certain developers.

The questions on the First Minister were tabled by Green Party MLA Brian Wilson. He asked Mr Poots to “detail any representations” made by Mr Robinson since 2000 in relation to planning applications by Mr Campbell, Mr Fraser or “associated companies”. In a question to Mr Robinson’s own department, Mr Wilson asked if “any declarations of interest were made by the First Minister in relation to departmental or Executive discussions” on the future of Belfast’s Titanic Quarter.

Mr Campbell is a member of the Titanic Quarter advisory board. The Green Party MLA also requested details of “any planning enforcement actions initiated on developments owned by Fred Fraser or associated companies”. The DUP has stonewalled questions on whether Mr Fraser financially supported the party.

It’s still not clear what “matters”, exactly, the PSNI are investigating.

    It seems that the former boss of the Planning Service is also on the TQ Board: http://www.titanic-quarter.com/items/mediaroom/presspack/tql_board_information.pdf

    IIRC McConnell was only an Acting Chief Executive due to the incumbent being terminally ill. He joined Andras House almost immediately after retiring, something that caused a few raised eyebrows.

    Would Fred Frazer lending the DUP cars for free count as undue influence?

    The Greens are planning to use the Robinson issue to press for much greater transparency on donations to all political parties here. About time too!

    Well they’re not exactly going to tip off a potential perp as to what they are up to.
