Mayoral Trips

Tom Smith made this Freedom of Information request to West Midlands Combined Authority

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear West Midlands Combined Authority,

I write under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information from WMCA/Mayor of the West Midlands.

All receipts and bookings (with costs) for Mayor Andy Street and any accompanying staff for any overseas trips made since 1 July 2018. This includes food and accommodation.

Copies of receipts for trips made by the Mayor of the West Midlands by rail and taxi since July 2018. (If copies of receipts are difficult, a breakdown of trip made and the cost is suitable.)

Please let me know if any of this is unclear.
Yours faithfully,

Tom Smith
