Dear Oxford City Council,

I would like to know how much money the council has spent on political advisers for each council department dating from 2010 - present.

I would also like to know how much money or donations the council has spent on political advisers for each councillor dating from 2010 - present.

Dear Ms Storer,
 
Oxford City Council – Reference: 8984
 
Further to the acknowledgement below, I can respond to your Freedom of
Information Act 2000 request received on 30th January 2020 as follows:
 
The Council does not employ political advisors nor has it done within the
last decade, so the answer to both questions will be £0.
 
If you disagree with any part of the response to your request, you are
entitled to ask the Council for an internal review of the decision(s)
made.  You may do this by writing to the Monitoring Officer, by either
email – [email address] – or by post to Monitoring Officer, Oxford
City Council, St Aldate’s Chambers, St Aldate’s, Oxford, OX1 1DS.  After
the result of the internal review, if you remain dissatisfied, you may ask
the Information Commissioner to intervene on your behalf.  You may do this
by writing to the Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe Lane,
Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
 
Yours sincerely
 
Kathryn Winfield
Freedom of Information Officer
