Dear West Suffolk Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of West Suffolk Council's handling of my FOI request 'Fixed Penalty Notices for Anauthorised School Absences'.

The council's response is well overdue (original deadline was 19th November 2019), and I was wondering when this will be available?

Yours faithfully,

Naomi
