Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Department for Work and Pensions's handling of my FOI request 'Statistical data for Benefit sanctions'.

I find it hard to believe that it would take 3 days to search computers for information and this is just another tactic the DWP use to obfuscate the facts. It is publicly held knowledge and I refuse to see how or why the public are not meant to see it.

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

Yours faithfully,

Joe Hannigan
