Dear Argyll and Bute Council,

Please ignore my previous request - I made an error with the financial year. The correct request follows:

Please could you tell me your 2018-19 weekly foster care allowances for all age bands, NOT including any fee/reward element for foster carers.

Thank you and apologies for any confusion.

Yours faithfully,

Dear HSCP FOI,

Thank you for your reply. However, I must disagree with you - this FoI still needs to be responded to because the link to the website you have provided only provides the rates for the 2015-16 financial year, not the 2018-19 financial year that I requested. I look forward to hearing from you with the full information soon. Many thanks.

Yours sincerely,

Robert Cann
