Unless I'm missing something, the Southwark website has no information members' expenses and payments (SRA or otherwise) going back to 2013 and February 2014 respectively. Someone made a request earlier this year via the Whatdotheyknow website for this information and it was refused on the basis that the council would be disclosing it anyway. Five months on, nothing is there.

I'm interested to know in real terms what has been paid during this period and it seems the council is unwilling to divulge. If you're reading this, Peter John, can you ensure it is published ASAP?

I got a letter from Southwark recently asking me to confirm my allowances for the period up to May 2014, I think the details will be posted soon.

I think it was published in Southwark News today for 2013/14.

It was indeed. Many thanks. When will the year 2014/15 be published, Peter?

anything interesting? (forgot to pick up a copy today)

these of course need to be put in context of the countless dinners/lunches/trips to cannes etc by various developers/investors/'important business people' etc (see also: private eye) :)
