FOI Request 19/255




FOI Request 19/255


All records in the department relating to department spending on “pictures/art” which according to a previous Freedom of Information response is “only provided to minister’s bedroom.”

I understand that this allowance may also be applicable for ambassadors, consuls, officials, or any other State representatives working abroad, as allowed under the departments’ official “list of furniture for new official accommodation,” so I am seeking similar records relating to these expenses too.
I would like the response to include, but not be limited to, records, such as invoices, receipts or any other, for “pictures, art” for any of the persons in positions mentioned above:

Details of the total value of purchases for persons above for the years 2011 to 2019

Details of the value of purchases by each location for the years 2011 to 2019

Details of the individual items (descriptions) purchased from 2011 from 2019
