The cost of food and drinks at South Kesteven District Council meetings in 2019

This request has been withdrawn by the person who made it. There may be an explanation in the correspondence below.

Dear South Kesteven District Council,

I would like to know the cost of any food and drink that is purchased for consumption at all council meetings and events throughout 2019. I would also like to know the costs of each individual food and drink type (for example, the total cost of biscuits throughout 2019).

I would be interested in any information held by your organisation regarding my request. I understand that I do not have to specify particular files or documents and that it is the department’s responsibility to provide the information I require.

If my request is denied in whole or in part, I ask that you justify all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the Act.

I look forward to your response within 20 working days, as outlined by the statute.

Yours faithfully,

James Hutchison
