Dear Local Government Ombudsmen,

My follow-up request dated 4 February 2010 appears to have been overlooked.

Talking to BBC Radio Five Live was not part of Jerry White's LGO duties and doing so would be a private matter. Why then was Jerry White's claim (against public funds) for re-imbursement of a taxi fare to BBC Radio Five Live Coventry, to be interviewed on 6 September 2009, not refused by the Commission?

Yours faithfully,

chris taylor

Foi Officer, The Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman

Dear Mr Taylor

Our ref: CS/10/031

My apologies for overlooking your previous request.

Doing media interviews was part of Jerry White's work activities as Local Government Ombudsman.
Therefore his travel claim was legitimate.

Yours sincerely
