Expenditure on printing and postage

Request

I am writing to obtain information about your expenditure on printing and postage.

To outline my query as clearly as possible, I am requesting:

1) The overall cost of printing by the Council for the financial years 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12 broken down by year

2) The cost of printing for each of these years broken down by Council departments

3) The cost of printing for each of these years by the council's internal printing service if one exists

4) The cost of printing for each of these years by any external supplier

5) The cost of postage for each of these years.

By printing, I mean leaflets, letters and information published and / or sent to residents, businesses etc as well as internal documents for use by council officers and councillors.

By postage I mean the cost of sending physical documents whether by Royal Mail or any other courier or shipping company.
