1-3. Please find the information you requested here

4. and 5. We do not break our budgets down into detail that would identify the information requested. We can supply budget details for the past 5 years in broad categories. Information up to 2013/14 is already available on the Moray Council website here and is therefore exempt under Section 25 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. 

Please find attached here and here the budget information for 2014-15 and 2015-16 which would bring the detail up to date.
