A query was raised on the comments on the report and this was the answer:
“Regarding the exercise of public rights matter raised on the report, the revised 8th June – 18th July dates include only 29 working days, and not 30. This is why the matter was raised. I understand that it seems like a harsh technicality but we have to be strict in making sure smaller authorities comply with the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015. Please note that since it is an ‘other’ matter it does not qualify our overall opinion”
This was due to a non working day being included in the dates.
