Freedom of information requests

Freedom of information

We want to share information with you about how we do things and what we spend money on. The Freedom of Information Act allows you to ask us for all the recorded information we have on any subject.

You don’t have to tell us why you want the information, and we won’t ask. We will be open and honest.
