Dear Ms Murray

Can you please link to this information if it is as you say already available. I believe that it is not possible to find. As part of the commitment you have to transparency and to FOI, do you really think that this is a helpful answer for citizens?

As councillors have specifically asked internal audits to be available to them on audit committee, hence available for us. There are 20/30 of them each year. May I suggest you try to find them.

My experience is as you have been forced by councillors to publish them to audit committee, you add them unspecified under a generic governance item, you don't attach them to the printed agenda, you don't name all the reports in the electronic agenda. When you print the minutes the audits seem to *disappear*. So please provide links to these internal audits as you say they are there. This has become known as democracyYorkstyle.

Regarding the external audits it would take a very long time, I suggest impossible. for even someone who knows where to look.

This was a really thoughtless inadequate response Cath Murray. I think the ICO would have a great deal to say.

I will report this to audit and governance committee once you have confirmed that it us not possible to find all of these audits- unless I have missed a central resource which I am sure you will be keen to tell me.

Gwen

Gwen. The council is corrupt.

They don't see the annotations.

Check out the questions to them re York and District Deaf Society. Then go on the Charity Commission website to view the accounts of York & District Deaf Society.

They sold the premises at 61 Bootham, valued in excess of 700K. There appears to be no accounting for that property.

The council refuses to say how much money it gives to the charity "because it might hurt the charity's 'business interests"" What the hell is that supposed to mean?
