Question

Under the Freedom of Information Act, please could you tell me:

- the number of incidents of pest infestation dealt with by your authority in each of the last two financial years (ie, April 2009 to April 2011).

If your authority is unable to provide this level of detail, please can you supply a response that will summarise recent trends over the given period, if there are any. For instance, whether has been an sharp or slight increase or fall in certain species.
