Review Procedure

Dear George,

 

The financial transparency reports you requested were previously available
on our website.  However, our website was recently reviewed and a decision
was made to only retain the previous three years of such data on there. 

 

However, we have managed to locate our Financial Transactions Report for
2015/16 which is attached.
