Dear Info Compliance,

I am NOT surprised that you don't have a policy for the
selection of personnel for Common Purpose training because this selection is probably not formally carried out AND not surprised that you don't have copies of any correspondence (email, letters, memos etc)relating to the selection of personnel for Common Purpose training because Common Purpose does not like paper trails.

I am also NOT surprised that there was a cock-up in dealing with this request. I don't want a review and will have to accept your excuses for the delay.

The Curse of the Useless British Manager strikes again.

Yours sincerely,

John Walker
