In particular, I would be grateful if you would forward the monthly statements for credit/purchasing cards used by the fire service in 2013/14, 2014/15 and so far in 2015/16.

Please see attached document for monthly expenditure as requested.

I have attached an Excel spreadsheet to clarify certain items of expenditure and provide context.

West Midlands Fire Service operates a long service memento scheme whereby employees of West Midlands Fire Service who have completed 25 years continuous service are permitted to choose an item up to the monetary value of £200.00.  If an item costs more than this then the employee provides the difference in payment before the item is purchased by the organisation.

If you have any queries about this letter, please contact me. Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications. If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a complaint or request a review of our decision please write to The Public Relations Department, West Midlands Fire Service, 99 Vauxhall Road, Birmingham, B7 4HW
