Dear Freedom Info,

You have not given the amount of funding provided by the council to the independent service providers for transport because you say this is included in the contract price. The council must know what this funding is in order to arrive at a contract price. Final contract price is simply the sum of all the component prices that make up the contract. will you please provide me with the transport funding for each of the independent service proverders. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Peter Harrop

Dear Helen Coldwell,

The reason I requested a review was that the information was overdue. Shortly after my request the information arrived and I therefore assumed the request for a review would be cancelled. I can not see the point of having a review because of the deadline not being met when the information as now been recieved.

I have queried some of the information and until I recieve an answer to my query I can not say if the information supplied is acceptable, if it's not then I will need a review. I understand that my query has been passed to your department.

Yours sincerely,

Peter Harrop

Helen Coldwell, Kirklees Borough Council

Dear Mr Harrop

Dear Kirklees Borough Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Kirklees Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Day care transport charges'.

The replies to this the request seem to be inconsistant.

The first reply said that the amount allocated for transport is included in the independent service providers contract.

The second reply said that information about this allocation was not kept by the council.

How can the council include this allocation in the contracts if it does not know what the allocation is!
