3) It is not possible to provide this as once a fine has been generated it is attached to a borrower record rather than the book record. To conduct the analysis required would be likely to cost more than £450, exceeding the statutory appropriate limit for requests.

4) The maximum fine is £10 per item. There is also a charge of £85 if someone has lost a book.

5) 16,290 (this figure is a snapshot subject to daily change).
