Dear Finance FOI,

Thank you for your reply (indeed, I meant 'shire' not 'city'). Please confirm that Aberdeenshire Council has NO advertising spend at all with Aberdeen Journals Ltd, which of course includes its companies Aberdeen Press & Journal and the Evening Express.

Yours sincerely,

Suzanne Kelly
