Dear childrenandadultsfoi,

The costs of the above document submitted do not make any sense. for Example
in 2017/2018 20 children cost £4883.00
in 2016/2017 24 children cost £24556.00
Please provide a breakdown of all these costings listed on the document by department and any outsourcing contracts or documents that Medway council have to explain these odd differences in funding for the purposes of public money.

Please also provide all financial audit documents.
Yours sincerely,

Harley
