A question was raised by the Leader of the Opposition on whether the level of debt reported in paragraph 4.3 of the Cabinet report was correctly listed as £5m, on the rollover of debt, and on the papers available to the meeting.  The Leader responded by confirming that the full list of temporary loans taken out was set out in Appendix 2 to the Cabinet Report.
