Dear Angus Council,
I refer to a previous FOI request concerning a 275,000 UK Pound loan granted to William McDonald T/A WOW Leisure (in administration). I have all the information required on this matter except the names of the Councillors, who voted unanimously for this loan. I am particularly interested if Marie Gougeon (SNP) voted for this unsecured loan under her maiden name.

Yours faithfully,

Gordon C Stalker

LEGDEM, Angus Council

granted to William McDonald T/A WOW Leisure (in administration). I have
all the information required on this matter except the names of the
Councillors, who voted unanimously for this loan. I am particularly

With regard to your query about Marie Gougeon I would advise that the
council does not hold this information.  However, information available on
the [2]internet seems to suggest that Marie Gougeon might be the same
person as Cllr Marie Evans.

 

I hope that this information is of some help to you. Please note that the
information contained in this reply is believed to be accurate as of
today's date (unless otherwise indicated) but no warranty is given.
Further, Angus Council does not accept liability for any loss, injury or
damage which arises from the use of the information contained in this
reply either by you or by any other party. Please refer to the information
set out below which explains your right to complain if you are unhappy
with how the Council has dealt with your request. If you have any queries,

Brenda Angus
