The Freedom of information Request also says
Please note that the above spend is on our corporate contract and includes spend for ALL SCC sites and other organisations that are permitted to use our contracts e.g. schools, charitable organisations etc.
It is likely that there has been other spend of this nature but records are not held in such a way as to identify spend in such a detailed way.
Of course the object of this post is to demonstrate how pathetic the Evening Star is becoming. I fear as Andrew Grant-Adamson does here, that FoI requests have given regional newspapers, hit by declining sales, reduced advertising revenue, and the resulting loss of reporters, a cheap semblance of investigative reporting.
