Freedom of Information Act 2000 - Request for Information

 

Thank you for your email 28 November 2018 where you requested information
about 5G.

This request references Liverpool City Council on a number of occasions.
West Lancashire Borough Council have already responded to a previous FOI
stating that WLBC or its partners do not have any strategies in place or
any involvement with mobile vendors in relation to their wireless
technology (2g/4g/4g/5g) in any shape or form so therefore 

No presentations or documentation exists on this subject.

 

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the
right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be
submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your
original letter and should be addressed to: Jacqui Sinnott-Lacey,
Director of Housing and Inclusion.

 

Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future
communications.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of an internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information
Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9
