Dear R D Crick


Further to your recent Freedom of Information enquiry, we should be
grateful to receive clarification as to what is meant by “a list of
compensation claims”?


Do you wish to receive numbers of claims received from all services? Is it
to identify the percentage of social care negligence claims against the
Council’s corporate claims experience?


Ass soon as we are clear as to your requirements, we will attend to your
request without further delay.


Yours sincerely
