FOI Request - Council Public Library Information
am writing your council to request council public library budget information for the last five years. I am a student at the University of Glasgow and am writing my thesis about how austerity cuts have affected public library provision of adult educational and learning services, such as readers' advisory, literacy classes, computer classes, ESOL classes, and more. If itemized information is available, that would be appreciated.
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, this information is exempt under Section 25 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, information otherwise accessible. For ease the information can be found at http://www.moray.gov.uk/moray_standard/page_95829.html
The budget information for 2014-15 which would bring the detail up to date can be found here.
