Dear Highland Council,

I am writing to make a request under the Freedom of Information Act for information about the money spent on disability benefits.

More specifically I am requesting the following:
1. The amount of money spent by your council on benefits for people with a disability in 2017. Please provide a breakdown of money spent across each year with a detailed specification of each different benefit.

I have provided an example of how this answer might be formatted:
MONTH AMOUNT SPENT (£) BENEFIT
JANUARY 2017 30,000 DISABILITY LIVING ALLOWANCE

b) Please could you also provide:

2) The same as above for 2016.

3) The same as above for 2015.

4) The same as above for 2014.

I would like this information in electronic format, preferably as CSV files. Get data in format you can use.

If my request is denied in whole or in part, I ask that you justify all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the act.

Please let me know you have received this.

If there are any problems, or you need more information please get in touch.

Yours faithfully,

Sanjeev Mann
