not the Rate Demand or Rate Account Number.

Please provide the information in an
electronic, spreadsheet format. The Act requires that a response be provided within a period of 20 working days from the date hereof. In my experience this request for information falls within the parameters of the Act.
At present the Revenue and Benefit Section is undergoing a complete system conversion, which means that I cannot provide up-to-date information.
