Dear Sarah Oneill,

Please can you clarify your response to question 1 as I believe you must commission more than 13.2 hours in total per week in the borough?

You also failed to answer question 6: The names of the current Domiciliary Care Providers commissioned in your authority to deliver Adult Social Care

Yours sincerely,

Jamie Wake
