Dear Scotland’s Commissioner for Children and Young People,

Dear Gillian Munro

Thank you very much for your response. However I note that in your response the following Value for Money for Assessments were not included and would like to see these as they are for substantial amounts of money, three between £5.000 and £6000 and one at almost £10.000 . I assume VFM assessments are availabel for these and would be grateful if you could please send the details through as soon as possible.

Thank you
