My area of interest relates to departments involved in the construction of new buildings, and in the repairs & maintenance of existing properties within your local authority.
I therefore would be most grateful if you would provide me with the following information to the questions listed below.
Many thanks in advance.

Please would you provide a copy of your policy ?

2) Do you have a clear unambiguous policy in relation to conflict of interest and gifts and hospitality, and if so, please would you provide a copy?
