The revised draft unaudited accounts for 2017/18 contain a number of adjustments agreed with our External Auditors, BDO LLP, post publication of the initial draft on 31 May.  

We'll publish the 2017/18 Audited Statement of Accounts as soon as our External Auditors have concluded their audit work and provided an Audit Opinion.  We expect this to be available later in October 2018.
