Can you please supply the information requested or a reason for not complying with the law governing the FOI act?

Alan Soskin,

Hello J (John, Jane?) -

Further to your FOI Request dated 7th March, and your follow-up earlier
today, I write to offer a partial response.

The Council's corporate training unit (Organisational Employee
Development) does not support staff on the common purpose programme. We
have therefore had to make enquiries at departmental level to discover any
attendees. This has revealed that one director has undertaken this course.
I am awaiting expenditure/invoice details from that department, and I will
write to you again when this information is to hand. I anticipate that I
will be able to forward this to you before the end of next week.

I apologise for the delay in sending you a full response within the 20-day
deadline.
