How many looked after children under 18 was the authority responsible for at financial year end, 2018/19?II. How many of these were accommodated in residential facilities within the authority?III. How many of these were accommodated in residential facilities outside the authority?IV. What was the average weekly cost of accommodating these children outside the authority?V. What was the average weekly cost of accommodating these children inside the authority?VI.
