Request Description

I am undertaking an analysis of the impact of litigation of the public sector and would like to know:

· How many lawsuits did you settle in financial year 2008-2009 and financial year 2013-2014?

· How many lawsuits did you have brought against you in financial year 2008-2009 and financial year 2013-2014?
