Dear Jackie Kane,

Thank you for your reply, however you have not fully answered the original request. Could you please provide the information broken down into numbers for support staff/lecturers for each year as requested?

Yours sincerely,

John Gallacher

Jackie Kane, Newbattle Abbey College

My apologies. I read your last point as only broken down into support staff/lecturers if earning over £70,000pa. This is the reason I put none of the above earned more than £70,000pa. Can you clarify if you require this information even if a staff member does not earn more than £70,000pa.
