Provost Expenses

Mae'r cais yn aros am eglurhad. Os John Smith ydych chi, os gwelwch yn dda, mewngofnodi i anfon neges ddilynol.

Dear Ms. Tarver,

I am writing to request a listing of all the Provost's expenses broken down by claim and/or receipt for the previous 12 months up until this request is answered. Where such expenses include hospitality, accommodation and so forth your response should include details of the establishment at which such expense was incurred.

With respect to this request, I ask that you consider the High
Court decision (Corporate Officer of the House of Commons v The
Information Commissioner & Leapman, Brooke, Thomas [2008] EWHC 1084
(Admin) (16 May 2008)) in which the Court ruled that MPs' must
disclose the full details of their Additional Costs Allowance. This
case does not stand alone but is rather the culmination of a
gathering body of case law in which it is accepted that officials
spending the public's money have a responsibility to account for
that expenditure to the public.

I would ask that you remember the Act’s Section 16 duty on public
authorities to provide advice and assistance to requesters. If for
any reason you are leaning toward rejecting any part of this
request or if you plan to argue that it is unmanageable or
unanswerable in any way then I would expect you to contact me
promptly to find ways to answer this request to our mutual

I would also be grateful if you could confirm
in writing that you have received this request via this website,
and I look forward to hearing from you within the 20-working day
statutory time period.

Yours faithfully,

John Smith

Dear Mr Smith

Further to your freedom of information request of 1 September 2018, please could you define what exactly you mean by expenses? The Provost has not made any claims for the reimbursement of expenses during the last twelve months.

Yours sincerely
