Dear Darlington Borough Council,
Please treat this email as a Freedom of Information request.
I would like to receive a copy of the complete current local authority Register of Interest for all elected politicians in a machine-readable spreadsheet format such as a CSV file, including any additional information that may not be published on your website.
If you hold records relating to historical registers of interest for current and former elected politicians I would be grateful if you could also supply them.
I would also like to receive a copy of the complete current local authority Gifts and Hospitality Registers for all elected politicians in a machine-readable spreadsheet format, including any data that may not be published on your website.
If you hold historical records of gifts or hospitality received for current and former elected politicians I would be grateful if you could also supply them.
Lastly, if you hold a separate register of interests that records those declared at meetings, please also supply that register in a machine-readable spreadsheet format. Again, if you hold historical records of declarations that may not be published on your website, please supply details.
I would prefer not to receive the requested information in pdf format files.
If the requested information is published as open data, please could you supply the location where this data can be found.
I look forward to hearing from you in due course.
