I recall a while back a thread about using FOI to query housing benefit costs, with varying success. Just read a blog about using the Audit legislation to get accounts which is more likely to get results - but you only have a limited time to use it, which for some reason is not widely advertised.

Anyway, the dates for lots of councils are in the post below.

Don't bother wasting your time or that of anyone else. Most of the information you seek is probably in the public domain anyway if you just look around for it.

Start here with figures for the last 13 years for every local authority in the UK.

You'll probably find nearly everything you need on the DWP website.
