Dear Clackmannanshire Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Clackmannanshire Council's handling of my FOI request 'School Commencement Date'.

I note that the Local Authority has breached law in their response time. Can this be investigated with a full response provided promptly to my original Freedom of Information request.

Thanks
