Dear Rustam Majainah,

In order that we provide you with the information you require please can your provide some clarification of your request.

You have asked for information for the year in which 31 July 2013 falls, for us this will be the 1 Aug 12 - 31 July 13 year. However I understand that the living wage figure you refer to (£7.65) was introduced after the year in which you are interested (it was increased to £7.65 in November 2013). During July 2013 the living wage figure was £7.45, please can you confirm that we should provide data based on a living wage figure of £7.45?

Best regards
Caroline

Dear Caroline,

It would be unreasonable to expect you to know what the living wage was before it was set! So yes, please use the July 2013 living wage figure of £7.45.

Yours sincerely,

Rustam Majainah
