Denbighshire Council

Dear Ms Price,

Thank you for your request for information received 17 December 2013 regarding expenses claims.

Further to my response of the 17 January 2014 I can now confirm that a query was made by a member of the public regarding a travel expense claim submitted by a Councillor. The claim was investigated and judged to be a minor form filling error, the situation was remedied and the matter closed. I can also confirm that this was never referred to North Wales Police.

If I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

If you have any concerns about the manner in which the Council has dealt with your request for information please do not hesitate to contact me. Alternatively you can contact the Access to Information Feedback Officer, Records Management, 46 Clwyd Street, Ruthin, LL15 1HP.

Exactly how a fraudulent car expenses claim made by a none car owner and none driver can be classified as "a minor form filling error " totally defeats me !
