Written answers (Question to Jobs)

Officials in my Department are currently compiling the information sought by the Deputy. As our current financial system was changed in 2003 it does not hold information prior to 2004, therefore extracting the equivalent accurate data required for 2001-2003 may prove to be very complex and costly.

Once the available information is collated I will arrange for it to be forwarded to the Deputy as soon as possible.
