Hello Ms Keeley

We are requesting clarity on a question you have asked in a request for information.

Question 7 asks for current average monthly spend on 1-1/cohorting services. Is this 2017/18 average spend per month or is this previous month spend?

I will not be able to take this matter further without extra information from you.

If you wish to discuss any of the above then please contact me. Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.

Regards

James
