Did Peter Brooks meet privately with the CAP?

That little thing about a casino on the North Greenwich penninsula just doesn't seem to want to go away. As many will know, Greenwich finally submitted its case - publicly - to the Casino Advisory Panel. Present from the Council at the CAP were Mary Ney, the Chief Executive, and apparently the Deputy Leader, Peter Brooks.

Whilst officially, Greenwich's submission was heard in public, we've heard a rumour that Cllr Brooks allegedly made overtures - in private - with the Panel. If the allegation is true it certainly casts more uncertainty over the integrity of the Greenwich bid.

What exactly had to be said to the CAP in private that could not be expressed in public? If true, who authorised the Deputy Leader to arrange this meeting? These are questions that could of course be asked at full Council, if the Council was having a meeting that is.
