YESTERDAY we reported on the questions put forward by a Supporters Association deputation to Wednesday’s Kirklees Council meeting.
The initial response was a prepared statement by the Council leader, Mehboob Khan, as reported in yesterday’s Examiner.
This did include a firm commitment by the council to the restoration of the 40:40:20 split of the stadium shares and HTSA welcomes this commitment to see Huddersfield Town regaining its rightful shares. The leader also spoke about the council’s willingness to arbitrate and to do what it can to produce a satisfactory outcome.
However, the statement also contained some inaccuracies, not least of those being the claim that Ken Davy’s proposal to take the club out of administration was the only one available.
As was widely reported at the time, Paul Haigh’s consortium was making good progress with the administrator until that consortium made way for one which included Terry Fisher and Ken Davy.
At a later stage in the council proceedings, the deputation had an opportunity to pose two further questions and the first asked for more detail of the council’s plans to make progress by arbitration or some other means.
There was no clear answer to this other than to reconfirm the commitment to do what it could to restore the share ownership to its envisioned proportions.
The second question asked if the council considered it right that one individual should be allowed to make a profit from a transaction involving shares in a joint community venture where the Council was a partner.
Councillor Khan refused to answer this on the grounds that anything he said might prejudice the council’s role as an arbitrator.
Make of that what you will!
There has also been extensive media coverage and Town fans are urged to continue the coverage (literally!) by wearing the T-shirts to be distributed before tomorrow’s live TV match.
