"Leicester City Council has 20 working days to answer but its head of information governance, Lynn Wyeth, took to local radio yesterday to address the issue."

I predict a very short career for politicians spending public monies on anti-zombie measures. Just because it's "anti-zombie" doesn't mean the provisions are gonna go to waste. Prepping for a "zombie attack" just means you are more prepared for something else that could happen and honestly you never know what could happen.
