Dear Mr. Brown

I refer to your request for information, which was received on 9th April,
2019 and has been dealt with under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

The specific information you requested was contained in your email below.

In response, please find attached the relevant information held by the
Council for the financial years: 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19
(April to December)
The full set of transactions for the January to March period of 2018/19 is
not yet available hence only 9 months. We do not have any records for
invoice data prior to 2015/16 as the Authority had in place a different
financial database.
