Monmouthshire and Leonard Cheshire Disability's correspondence on the Living Wage

Doug Paulley made this Freedom of Information request to Monmouthshire County Council as part of a batch sent to 21 authorities

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 Monmouthshire Council,

You recently kindly provided me with useful information about the fees you pay to Leonard Cheshire Disability (LCD) and to other providers for social care, and what representations (if any) LCD has made to your council to increase fees paid by yourselves to LCD in order to enable LCD to pay its carers the Living Wage.

Luton council has indicated that since I made the above Freedom of Information Request to yourselves, they have received correspondence from LCD opening up discussion on the fees paid to LCD to enable LCD to pay the living wage. Further, LCD have informed my father that they "have in fact recently written to all local authorities who commission our services about our desire to pay the living wage."

I wonder if you could please inform me as to whether you have indeed received such correspondence from LCD. Further, could you please provide me with a copy of the correspondence (or, to be technically correct under the FOI Act, could you provide me with the information contained in the correspondence, preferably in the form of a copy of the actual correspondence.)

Thank you very much

Yours faithfully,

Doug Paulley
