Good evening Mrs Topping.
Your Ref: 181319/F20

With reference to my Freedom of Information request dated 02 December 2018, I requested the following information:

Can you please confirm the number of people registered to vote in Parliamentary and local elections as recorded in the Electoral Register on 01 April 2018 and 01 December 2018 respectively - actioned.

Can you please confirm the breakdown into the two constituencies: Blackpool North & Cleveleys and Blackpool South for the dates shown above - actioned.

Can you please confirm the breakdown into the individual wards for the dates shown above - not actioned.

After requesting a review of my FOI request on 15 January 2019, I received your communication dated 08 February 2019 confirming some of the information which I had requested but it would appear that the information to the latter question has not been provided to me therefore, I should be grateful, if you would provide me with this information so I can close my FOI request.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards
