will reveal their findings
to the Full Council at a meeting on 28th June
( and to the cabinet on June 12th), but it appears that the document was signed by an officer on the authority of its then executive committee but not planning officers or planning committee members. Roy Haynes, who was an executive committee member until he lost his seat in the May 2003 election, said that despite the council's findings about the executive committee, he was unaware of any negotiations with Tesco. "Not at any time to my knowledge was any negotiating done with Tesco," he said.
I guess we will have to wait for the full report to find out more, but it is starting to rival some of the great conspiracies of our time.
