Dear Michael Lynton,

Thank you for your response and guidance in relation to my request. I can clarify that in the absence of a formal Adult social care board I mean for the questions to be applied to the senior management team that delivers adult social care functions and report to the Director of Social Service (DASS) or whomever fulfill this statutory role if defined by a different name in your authority.

Further if there in the absence of a formal Adults Social Care Board can you advise whether the PSW forms part if the senior management team as defined above.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Harvey
