FreedomofInformation,

Dear Ms Baddams

Thank you for your note below. The request you originally sent to the Department of Health was replied to by colleagues by way of general correspondence, which had suggested that you should redirect your request to the Department of Work & Pensions (DWP).

The link from the What Do They Know Website shows that the DWP did reply to you under the FOIA. Therefore, any request for an Internal Review should be directed to the DWP accordingly. Please see below:
