FOI Request Council Funds

Request 101001658210

I would like to submit an FOI for the amount of money that the council has in its reserves in every year for the last six years; for the council’s end of year net fiscal position (budget £surplus or £deficit) in every year for the last six years;  for the size of the Scottish Government funding to the council in every year for the last six years; and for the size of this funding minus funding ring fenced for national policies (like the attainment fund).

Funding Received less ring fenced funding in each of the last six years    
The response relates to revenue grant funding.        
There is very limited ring fenced funding received from Scottish Government. Some revenue grant funding, whilst not ring fenced, is service specific. The figures below exclude ring fenced and other service specific revenue grant funding.
