Dear Haringey Borough Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Haringey Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'The Waiting List for council housing & related matters'.

There was no response to questions four and six in my request dated 18 January 2019. This is not satisfactory. What is the reason please, for skipping those two questions (below)?

4) How many council homes are there currently in Tottenham and of those, how many currently are Voids?
… …

6) Other than via Right-to-Buy, how many unoccupied council homes has Haringey Council sold, in the last five years please? (a) in Tottenham and (b) in the whole of the Borough?

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

Yours faithfully,

Clive Carter
