Dear Liverpool City Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Liverpool City Council's handling of my FOI request 'Andy Barr and Signature Living'.as I believe I am knowingly being misled.

In relation to Question 1.

Planning documents show that Mr Barr passed the following applications under delegated authority for Signature Living;

1. Alma Da Cuba, Seel Street, Liverpool, L1 4BH on the 3/10/2107.
2. Cunard Building, Georges, Pier Head, Liverpool, L3 1QL on the 21/12/2017.
3. Former Community College, Bankfield Road, Liverpool, L13 0BQ on the 7/02/2018.

Therefore, how can the answer to Question 1 be given as NONE? For the avoidance of doubt please refer to his signature on the planning certificates.

In relation to you answer to Question 4 in which you state;

"Neither the Code of Conduct for Employees nor legislation require the disclosure of a salary of an associated person."

I would strongly advise you to read over the different 'Codes of Conduct' and re answer this.

Additionally, you supplied 6 responses when I only asked 5 questions? Therefore can you reformat your responses.

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,

John Hanlon
