Dear Ms Daniel CEO,

I am writing to request an internal review of University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust's handling of my FOI request 'Audited accounts detail'.

You indicated in your reply to my request that you would respond by 5 August 2013. I issued a reminder in the morning of 5 August asking whether I could expect to receive your response by 'close of play' that day.
The response was received at 16.58 that day, was dated 29 July and declined to provide any of the information requested. No lawful reason was provided for the refusal.
I would like explanations of the following:
1. Why was the Trust's pre-prepared response delayed for a week and delivered at the last minute?
2. Why was no lawful reason provided for your refusal to supply, in a timely fashion, the information requested?
3. At what level was this matter considered and refused?
4. Which, if any, members of the Trust's Audit Committee or governors were consulted regarding the request and advised of the intention to refuse the whole of it?
I have now obtained, from a separate source, a copy of the audited accounts for 2012/13 and can see that the Trust has spent substantial sums of money on the matters that were the subject of my initial request.
In view of HM Government's commitment to openness and transparency, I would appreciate your explanation as to why your Trust appears to have sought to prevent or delay the information requested falling into the public domain.
I would also be grateful if you will now please provide the requested information without the necessity of further correspondence.

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 sincerely,

Gary Ellis
