Motion text

That this House supports the imaginative proposals to develop the Kings's Dock, Liverpool, including a new stadium for Everton FC; but also expresses concern at the Liverpool City Council plan to divert E35 million of European structural funds to facilitate the project; notes that the money would be lost to Merseyside if the project does not proceed; and questions whether this particular use of public funds, under the criteria for Objective One, is the most appropriate one for the wider interests of the people of Merseyside.
