Response 22-01-2019

To provide the requested information would require individual examination of each claim and it is estimated that this would take two full working weeks of staff time, costing the Council in excess of £600. In accordance with section 12 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, excessive cost, we are therefore unable to comply with this request.
