Dear Belinda Puaar,

Many thanks for your response.

For clarification on question 1 (How many packages do you commission on a monthly basis?), an average per month would be great.

Yours sincerely,

Callum Finn

Belinda Puaar, Barnet Borough Council

Dear Mr Finn
 
I would still need to you to clarify how long a period for the average
month. Do you want to know the average per month for the last quater? Or
for the last full financial year 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017 or perhaps
the last 6 months only.  We need to know the time frame you are requesting
to give you the average for.
 
Please can you respond and i can then arrange the response.
 
Kind regards
