Dear Mrs Oliver,

I am writing in response to your request for information (ref FOI 6817).

The relevant Council Service(s) has searched for the requested information and our response is as follows/attached/enclosed.

Further to your FOI request I can confirm that a budget of £31,000 has been allocated for the provision of meals before evening Council and Committee meetings. Depending on the nature of the meeting, this may be a hot meal or a cold sandwich buffet meal.

The figure specifically for ‘Councillors Teas’ for this financial year is £15,638.
