So that the whole regulation 4.5 reads:
" 4.1 Expenditure on revenue items may be authorised up to the amounts included for that class of expenditure in the approved budget. This authority is to be determined by:
• the Council for all items over £5,000;
• a duly delegated committee of the Council for items over £500;
• the Clerk, in conjunction with Chairman of Council or Chairman of the appropriate committee, for any items below £500.
• the Clerk for any items that are routine maintenance consumable items, including stationary, fuel and alike below £500,
Such authority is to be evidenced by a Minute or by an authorisation slip duly signed by the Clerk, and where necessary also by the appropriate Chairman. Contracts may not be disaggregated to avoid controls imposed by these regulations.
