Dear Stephen Shuster,

This is a copy of my e-mail of 18th Dec re this FOI request
From: Peter Silverman
Sent: 18 December 2017 16:49
To: '
Cc: ''
Subject: Roads Expenditure in Last 10 yrs


I have now found by Googling the websites which Stephen Shuster had listed in his communication to me of 12th Dec.

The HA accounts for 07/08 do give on page 65 a Total Resource Expenditure Limit (DEL) of £1,807 Million. Is this equivalent to the Resource Expenditure for 16/17 of £1,056 million given in your communication?

However, looking at the HE Accounts for 12/13 and 13/14 no Resource Expenditure figure is given, at least as far as I can see.

Can you please pass this on to Stephen – I have had to guess his e-mail address.

As things stand I feel I have not been provided with the info I have requested or been given appropriate advice and assistance to help me find what I am looking for.

I am confident you or Stephen will be able to put this right.


Peter Silverman

Yours sincerely,

Peter Silverman
