It has become awfully quiet with respect to CY’s DTZ dealings, which I talked about in an earlier post.
CY’s register of interests can seen here and previous versions are also available. DTZ never shows up. So what about those 4 million pounds in payments from UGL? Were they for past services or for future services? If the answer is for past services, then the payments are taxable. But apparently CY never paid taxes on the payments. If the answer is for future services – as the text of the offer letter from UGL suggests – then CY should have declared his interest, which he did not. Which one is it?
Meanwhile, the government is using private legal actions to avoid having to get its hands even dirtier with respect to Occupy Central.
