Dear Vera Giles,

Thank you for the response.

Could you confirm that the £800k figure is correct as Stoke on Trent City Council have published a report for a committee meeting on 17th February stating the figure is £511k.

Yours sincerely,

trevor jones

Vera Giles, Advantage West Midlands

Dear Mr Jones
I am responding to your email of 10 February to provide further clarification of our response to your request for information.

The amount of circa £800k is the potential amount that may be retained to the end of the financial year (31 March 2010). It appears that the Stoke figure is the amount due to the their date of publication.
Yours sincerely,

Vera Giles
