Dear Ms Roberts

 

Thank you for your request for information dated 16/10/19 concerning
Councillors Expenses

 

This is to inform you that your request has been considered and I can
provide the following response:

 

The Request:

Please will you provide the total costs, including travel and hotels for
the group of Powys Councillors recently travelling to Cardiff and staying
overnight in order to meet with Welsh Government Officials.

 

Please also provide any notes, reports of the meeting and the outcome of
the meeting regarding the finances of Powys County Council. 

 

The Response:

Hotel               £544.25

Travel             £487.50

Meals             £242.04

 

Please find attached a transcript of the meetings held.  Some information
has not been disclosed as it was not relevant to your request.  Other
information has been exempted under Section 36 of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 in that its disclosure may prejudice the effective
conduct of public affairs.  We have disclosed statements made by the
elected representatives of Powys County Council where appropriate but have
not disclosed responses from Welsh Government officials. 

 

When applying this exemption consideration has been given to the need for
a safe space in which to consider the matters discussed.  Time has been
spent on building a relationship between the Authority and Ministers and
the disclosure of what were essentially private meetings would impinge on
that relationship.  Whilst we accept that there is significant public
interest in the Authority’s financial circumstances and there has been
considerable media speculation, there is still the need for the safe space
in which to express views openly, honestly and completely and to explore
options.  Therefore, in this instance the public interest in maintaining
the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosure.

 

 

We believe that this request is now complete and shall be closed
immediately. Should any further information be requested regarding this
topic, a separate request will need to be submitted.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in
Powys County Council.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Information Compliance Team
