Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

The BBC says it paid out for three instances of garden leave in 2014/15 and five instances in 2015/16.
Please could you tell me in how many instances garden leave was approved in 2016/17 by
either SMRC or EBRC.
How many of these agreements related to SM or Executive graded staff?
Please also give me the total cost (wage value) of all garden leave.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Pilkington
