I believe this request is firmly in the public interest.
Could I please be provided with:
1. A spreadsheet of details of all contracts between your local authority and Emmaus UK or any of its
individual branches in your area that were signed after 6 April 2013. Those details should include:
a. Date contract signed
b. Total value of contract
c. Summary of services rendered by contract
2. A copy of each of the contracts included in point 1.

circumstances in the case, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in

I would like to receive the information in electronic copy but if this is not possible I would be more than
happy to receive the information in hard copy and/or inspect the documents on site.
I would like to receive in any information held by your department regarding my request , including a
register of datasets from which this information is drawn.
