1) Will you be ring fencing the ILF money passed to you to :-
a) Individual ILF Users.
b) Adult Social Care.
c) Not ring fence at all.

2) Have you received the details of how much money you are being
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
