Robert Davis Credit: Westminster Council

Robert Davis, who is the chair of planning for the council, was given meals at top restaurants, trips to the theatre and tickets to the Centre Court at Wimbledon.

He declared the trips and gifts in his register of interests, according to the council's rules. The council said the hospitality had no sway on planning decisions.
