Hi Chris,
 
Services for Children and Young People would not be able to answer this
FoI as it's about mosquito devices: this is not related to SCYP.
 
I have included [3][email address] (Lisa Woodman) in
this email as 'environmental and public protection' are listed under their
responsibilities.
 
A list of FoI Rep's and responsibilities is available from the document
library: [4]http://documentlibrary/documents/FoI_rep....
 
Would you be able to disseminate this list to your colleagues please (as
we do get a few forwarded that are not relevant to SCYP).
 
With thanks,
