Dear Belinda Puaar,

What do you need me to clarify?

Yours sincerely,

Everton Wynter

Puaar, Belinda, Barnet Borough Council

Dear Mr Wynter

 

Please respond to this email without changing the Subject line. 

 

We are unable to respond to some of your questions as they are based on
the assumption that we own and run care home for people with a Learning
Disability, which is not the case.  Therefore I would like to suggest that
if you are happy to receive the answers we are able to provide now,  you
may then wish to resubmit certain questions or withdraw the questions
which are not relevant.

 

Please let me have your advices so we can move forward with your FOI
request at your earliest convenience.   

 

Kind regards
