1.            Could you please tell me how much your council has spent on covid marshals as of 22 August 2021?

2.            Could you please tell me how many covid marshals your council has hired too as of 22 August 2021?

RESPONSE

1.            The Council has spent £139,894.79 on covid marshals as of 22 August 2021

2.            The Council has deployed Covid Marshals but it is not possible to equate this to full time equivalent positions.  The Council is working closely with a third party agency to deploy Covid Marshals but the number of staff employed and hours worked is flexible allowing the Council to respond to particular issues or areas of demand.
