Dear Welsh Government,

Thank you for some of the information I have requested. I would still like to know the salary of the First Minister's driver. I happen to know that there is a driver who spends time at the Senedd while awaiting the return drive for the minister and receives meals and refreshments as part of this. Therefore I would like to receive a full response on this part of the question.

Yours faithfully,

Nicola Lund

Dear Welsh Government,

Please confirm that my reply has been received. May I also ask for clarification regarding the fleet of vehicles? Are these vehicles only used for the First Minister or are they used for a number of cabinet ministers?

Yours faithfully,

Nicola Lund

Dear Welsh Government,

I was told that I would receive a response by March 22nd. I did not. This is now long overdue. Please let me know when I can expect a reply by, otherwise I shall have no option other than to request an internal review.

Yours faithfully,

Nicola Lund

Dear Welsh Government,

Thank you for the response, finally. I shall put in a new request in order to find the answer that I require.

I also sent this request for clarification several weeks ago:

May I also ask for clarification regarding the fleet of vehicles? Are these vehicles only used for the First Minister or are they used for a number of cabinet ministers?

Yours faithfully,

Dear Welsh Government,

I refer to the last response received to my question asking for clarification.
You have quoted what I asked but given no response within.
Please can you respond fully?

Yours faithfully,
