Dear Buckinghamshire Council,

Can you look at the pricing information again please? I know from official documents that BCC have been known to pay themselves £5,700.00 per week per child for places, particularly at the Elms.

Dear Buckinghamshire Council,

I'm not sure what I have said that makes you believe this is in relation to external residential units but to clarify; my son was placed at the Elms and I have seen official Court documentation that states this placement was being paid £5,700.00 per week for my son's placement so again ask you to please clarify as the information you have provided is incorrect (£3-£4,000 per week, per child at the Elms)

Yours sincerely,

Kimberley Cleere
