Unexpected early press release from WBC

Is it somewhat unusual that Wirral Borough Council should issue this press release regarding the allocation of the £200k hardship fund a whole week ahead of the final decision being made?

This statement, which to all intents and purposes states that the allocation and distribution of the fund will go exactly to those for whom the Justice for New Ferry group have been campaigning, was issued for immediate release two hours ahead of the council meeting this evening.

Given that one of the questions to council leader Pat Hackett was being posed by New Ferry explosion victim Christoper Power, was the early release of this statement intended to appease the questioner and his audience?
