I am informed by RMBC that the Leader, Cllr Roger Stone, recently undertook a visit on 2012.03.12 to Bulgaria on behalf of Migration Yorkshire.
I have made an FOI enquiry to RMBC in connection with this (see attached e-mail) and they have informed me that certain details are not recorded and held by them as the visit was undertaken on behalf of your statutory organisation, Migration Yorkshire.
Under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act I therefore require you to provide me with the following information –
1. What was the cost of Cllr Roger Stone’s air travel and accommodation costs? Please supply an itemised breakdown, including any drinks, meals, supplementaries etc.
2. Please provide copies of any hospitality declarations made by Cllr Roger Stone in relation to this particular visit.
3. Please provide specific details of the accommodation venue, and specific details of the reason for the visit, and any post-visit reports relating to the visit on which Cllr Roger Stone was engaged.
4. Will Migration Yorkshire at Leeds City Council be reimbursing fuel costs and driver staff costs to Rotherham MBC for the use by RMBC Cllr Roger Stone of RMBC statutory vehicle, BMW saloon registration number YM08DZP used to convey him and Cllr Olivia Marie Rowley, Wakefield MDC to Manchester Airport on Migration Yorkshire business? And if not please explain why not.
Please provide the above information in electronic format and within the timescale prescribed in the Freedom of Information Act.
