This is a request for information under the The Environmental Information Regulations 2004. I would like to receive the following information:

If you could offer some kind of breakdown, like maintenance and repair of piping or installing new systems, that would be great. Failing that, even just an explanation of where this money is going that is invested in gas systems, with no specific breakdown, would be very helpful.
