- The full name, title and position of the council official who went on the overseas trip
- The reason or reasons why the council official went on the overseas trip

I would like to receive the information electronically. If you feel that a substantive response to this request is not possible within a reasonable time frame, or the request is too broad or too vague, I would be grateful if you could contact me and provide assistance as to how I could refine the request.
