Did anyone attend the CC this week? James maybe?

Was Neil Coyle present in his capacity as councillor or MP? My understanding - though admittedly I wasn't there - was that he spoke as the MP rather than as a councillor.

Would be grateful for clarification.

I don't know. Perhaps he was there in his capacity of Deputy Mayor.

It's an interesting question, but I suspect he was there as a councillor, as it seems unlikely that as MP he would go to all of the community councils.

I agree, but yet the agenda item (item 7) is: "Address by Neil Coyle MP".

It was his first attendance since April at the CC. Perhaps I'm just being cynical, but I wonder whether he only went in his capacity as MP rather than as councillor/deputy mayor.
