Dear Kirklees Borough Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Kirklees Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Annual Funding - Yorkshire Housing'.

The response from Katie Harrop 6th April 2018 does not relate to this information request. Also the figures given for the amount of housing benefits year on year have been presented in an unintelligible manner, please provide your response on official letterhead in a professionally written letter manner, which should be converted from word to PDF format to upload to the correct request, this is not an unreasonable request, I have made an informed decision to allow you another opportunity to respond to this request with a full frank and accurate disclosure of recorded information. Please be assured that upon receipt of your final response, should I have reasonable doubt that you have not responded in line with the act (FOIA) I will appeal to the ICO.
