Dear Department of Health,

Having already accessed the monthly published payments on your

Dear Department of Health,

Apologies for the delay in reply, to clarify "monthly published payments on our website" - the DoH departmental spending over £25000 see link:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio...

Additionally I appreciate it may breach section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act to identify the information I have requested for the time periods (April 2014-March 2015, April 2013-March 2014, April 2012-March 2013) - therefore I ask for only the data from the financial year April 2014-March 2015.

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Katie M
