Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response received on 9 April 2013

Budgeted expenditure for 2013/14 for the following areas is as follows:

(a) Drivers for senior officers - The budget is currently being finalised but last years figure was £997,916 and this is not expected to change.

(b) Capital spend on cars for senior officers - £335,000.

(c) Fuel - £70,000 and Maintenance - £155,000

(d) Motor insurance - £13,000.

My key objective in the current budget is to maximise value for the taxpayer through the pursuit of savings and efficiencies while protecting frontline services.
