Dear Mark,

Thanks for the information you've provided so far.

I was wondering if you could just clarify the budget figures (BM and RE don't mean much to me!) - is the 'actual' revenue expenditure the figure I'm looking for? For example, £177,562.25 for 2012.

Yours faithfully,

Jo Davies

Manchester City Council

In response to your request for clarification i can confirm that B.M.
