Dear Essex County Council,

Would you please furnish me with the following information.

2. How many of these people lacked capacity?

Thank you.

Dear Your Right To Know,

Just to clarify 'internet care portal for care providers' Is the uploading and advertising the details of adults with a learning disability who have applied to their local LA for residential care. Care providers are then invited by the LA to outbid each other for the care packages.

Yours sincerely,

Michelle Daly
