Request for details on the Council's spending of Council Tax Revenue

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Cardiff Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Cardiff Council,

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information from Cardiff Council.

Please may you provide me with:

• Details of all the expenses and outgoings made by the Council which proves that the Council Tax is not being spent illegally or unlawfully.

• Also, which law states that it is a criminal offence not to pay Council Tax?

• Please supply me with the contractual agreement that I have agreed or consented to pay?

• Finally, a Council Tax is effectively an offer to contract. A contract (in Legal terms) can only be offered by a Corporation to another Corporation or by a living man or woman, to another living man or woman.

The law does not allow a Corporation to contract with a living man or woman and vice versa. Please explain to me then how a Corporation (such as Cardiff Council) is able to make an offer to myself, a living man?

Please provide the information to me by letter to my home address.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under the Section 16 obligations of the Act, as to how I can refine my request.

If you can identify any ways that my request could be refined, I would be grateful for any further advice and assistance.

If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact me via email and I will be very happy to clarify what I am asking for and discuss the request, my details are outlined below.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response.

Best wishes,

Yours faithfully,

Craig Salter

Cardiff Council
