allocated and if so how much is that.
3) When will you be starting reassessments of ILF users and when do
you anticipate completing those assessments.
4) What arrangements are you putting in place for those ILF users

the forthcoming election alters the ILF funding situation?.

Dear Mr Black
Here is the response to your FOI request.
Due to the small size of the authority we are not expecting any ILF monies. There are no residents in the authority in receipt of ILF monies.
