Dear ‎Mr Jones‏
 
Freedom of Information Act 2000
 
Thank you for your request for information which was received on 18 June
2018.
 
Your request was: 
 
Can you please answer the following questions on MHCLG responsibility for
local authority governance;

1 does MHCLG have a statutory responsibility to ensure local authorities
are financially sustainable?

2 if so which legislation and how do you ensure this, if not is that still

5 she also said there is a local authority risk register, please share the
latest version

6 please share all correspondence to max caller within the last year
(email, text, WhatsApp, etc)

7 please share the first draft of max callers best value inspection report
into ncc
 
I am writing to ask you to clarify your request. This is because we need
further details from you in order to identify and locate the information
you have asked for in relation to Question 6:
"all correspondence to Max Caller within the last year (email, text,
WhatsApp, etc) ".
Please could you confirm if your request is for all correspondence to Max
Caller from any member of staff over the last year; which would entail a
search of all staff mailboxes.
Alternatively are you requesting all correspondence to Max Caller in the
last year in relation to his work on the Best Value Inspection of
Northamptonshire County Council? This would narrow your request down to a
smaller group of staff. 
 
I will not be able to take this matter further without this extra
information from you. Please let me know by 01/10/2018.
 
If I do not hear from you within the timeframe provided, I shall take it
that you do not wish to pursue this request and will consider the request
closed. 
 
Yours sincerely
 
 
Joanne Butler

Despatch Box,

Dear Mr Jones
 
Freedom of Information Act 2000
 
Thank you for contacting us on 5 July 2018 to clarify your request.  You
have confirmed that you are content for Question 6 to be narrowed down
from any correspondence to Max Caller from any member of Ministry of
Housing, Communities and Local Government staff   to just correspondence
relating to Max Caller's work on the Best Value Inspection of
Northamptonshire County Council.    This will enable us to focus this part
of the request on a smaller group of staff.
 
I am dealing with your request under the Freedom of Information Act
2000 and aim to send you a response on or before 03 August 2018, which is
the statutory deadline.
 
Many thanks,
