Dear Clifford Hart,

Thank you for your informative reply. May ask for some clarification of 3 points? Please confirm or otherwise the following assumptions I have made:

1) that there has been no special number plate purchase or sale;

2) that the car leasing agreement included maintenance (ie Contract Hire);

3) that the car driver costs shown since 2010 represent a proportion of the cost of drivers employed for the transport of all council officials, not a specific driver dedicated to the mayor's office.

Yours sincerely,

Robert Lindsay-Smith

Hart Clifford, Haringey Borough Council

Dear Mr Lindsey-Smith,

 

In answer to your three points raised:

 

i.                     No special purchase or sale of number plate

ii.                   Yes this included maintenance

iii.                 It is for the Mayor’s attendant costs as stated

Yours sincerely
