2) The highest rent the council pays to landlords for individual rents for tenants with a learning disability/mental health difficulty.

For your reference, the definition of "exempt accommodation" includes: accommodation provided by a county council, housing association, registered charity or organisation where care, support or supervision is provided to the tenant/claimant. In this case, the FOI is particularly interested in "supported living" services and accommodation which provides a care element, regardless of whether the care is provided by an external provider or someone associated with the landlord.
