Per the response to your friend Audrey, Cllr Millar’s flight, initially booked by his husband was reimbursed in full (cost £1303.99). This and other costs met by organisers with no cost to Liverpool tax payers.
Quote:
All costs and arrangements associated with this visit were initially met by Councillor Millar, with the initial payment being made in November. These were subsequently reimbursed in full to Councillor Millar by the organisers of the event to which this trip related, namely Global Entrepreneurship Network, on 28 December 2018 at which point notification was provided to the City Council of receipt of hospitality in accordance with the provisions of the Code of Conduct for Elected Members.
Councillor Millar advises that the total cost of flights (6) reimbursed to him was £1,303.99. The costs associated with this trip including their reimbursement have been recorded by
Councillor Millar as a Gift & Hospitality in the usual manner and which are publicly displayed on the City Council’s website

each FOI must be answered in its own merit the reply not copied and pasted from a previous FOI - this is a cop out to avoid the questions
the author of the FOI stated he wanted a full break down of Cllr Millar's expenses - this has not been addressed.
Ask for an Internal Review if that comes back as negative I recommend ICO

Council response states
Councillor Millar advises that the total cost of flights (6) reimbursed to him was £1,303.99.
The costs associated with this trip including their reimbursement have been recorded by Councillor Millar as a Gift & Hospitality in the usual manner and which are publicly displayed on the City Council’s website and reasonably accessible to you via

I’d recommend the council start charging if they have to keep repeating answers to questions.

The original response quotes ‘all expenses paid by organisers’ - why (AGAIN) ask for an internal review? I hope LCC are asking you to cover the cost of said review.

It’s good to have accountability, but asking the same question over and over is not a good use of public funds.
