Dear Aberdeenshire Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Aberdeenshire Council's handling of my FOI request 'All notes, minutes, agendas and details/dates of meetings with Aberdeen Football Club'.

I understand that officers of the council attended these meetings at that Aberdeenshire Council state no minutes/notes were taken. I find it difficult to believe that officers of the authority would not take notes at such meetings and request an internal review.

Please provide the name, role or the officers and clarification as to why no notes were taken, if this was the case,. Please also explain why there was no agenda for these meetings. I also wish to know who these officers report to.

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

Yours faithfully,

Angus Jamieson

Alastair Nicol, Aberdeenshire Council
