Dear FOI Team (BWH), thank you for your over complicated response which I find most interesting, however it seems to lack the administrative costs incurred by the trust in setting up and maintaining such schemes..

Yours sincerely,

Pat James

FOI Team (BWH),

Further to your follow up email, we have been advised that the administrative costs you seek are part of a central corporate function and trust vehicle provision cannot be identified separately.
