Dear Ministry of Defence,

Please can you provide the following data

1. total number of CFVA on strength, for the last 5 years
2. total number of VA days paid, for the last 5 years
3. amount of VA over spend or under spend, for the last 5 years

Please provide this for the following cadet force counties in 7 brigade

2. total number of VA paid OUT , for the last 3 years PER COUNTY under 7 x
3. amount of VA over spend or under spend, for the last 3 years PER COUNTY under 7 x

Could you advise if I can request full accounts of public funds of a cadet county ?

Dear Mr Fisher,

As the original request did not request a yearly breakdown, this will need to be raised as a new FOI. I have done this on your behalf.
Your Freedom of Information request has been logged under our reference 2019/10373 and the target date for response is 04/10/2019.

Yours sincerely

Dear Army Sec-Group (MULTIUSER),

firstly i did not request you do anything on my behalf so plese dont

i would like this request completed correctly , financial information would be expected in yearly blocks as per standard accounting practice

you provide the other data tabulated by year so even jsp101 would encourage you to be consistent when detailing items

i see this as noting more than an effort not to provide the data as requested or to existing standards in a format that's of no use to the original request, and attempting to put in another request on my behalf when you have not answered tghis one correctly is unaceptable and i belive delebrate to make it look like i ut in an unreasonable amount of requests

, i therefore request and internal review of how this has been handled

Yours sincerely,

joe fisher
