Hi A Thompson,


Thank you for getting in touch with regards to the above mentioned Freedom
of Information request.


We have consulted with our Shared Services provider and HR team, however
they have both been unable to provide a response to question 1 as they are
unsure as to what is meant by the term ‘Temporary Payroll’.


If you are able to provide me with what you define as a temporary payroll,
I will be able to feed this back and seek further information on this for


Kind regards,

Allan Smith
