Dear Northamptonshire County Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Northamptonshire County Council's handling of my FOI request 'Personal Budgets are spent on'.

Further to your reply

In that case there must be some financial audit report already undertook, where spending is analysed and its validity and the budgeting spending and forecast for the department. A copy that would give examples of actual spending for what and who to.

Its difficult if you cannot give for example of the likes top 50 spending items and which are the top 50 commercial organisations spending is on. There must be reports/audits undertook on the budget and its spending?

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