Dear Northern Ireland Ambulance Service Health and Social Care Trust,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Northern Ireland Ambulance Service Health and Social Care Trust's handling of my FOI request 'Medal information request'.

The extension that you have previously asked for has not been followed up with either a time frame or the information requested. I therefore again request the information and would like to know the reason for the delay which in this case is not acceptable.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/m...

Yours faithfully,
