Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of British Broadcasting Corporation's handling of my FOI request 'BBC Meeting Room Hire'.

The BBC initially rejected my request on grounds that it would take too long to research the answer. The BBC now claims it does not hold the information.

I believe the BBC does hold this information down to postcode because it was provided for 2014/15 in RFI20150516.

The BBC says it operates a centralised systems for the booking of hotels. This managed service contract includes bookings for meetings/conference rooms.

If the BBC is unable to split out how much of its meeting/conference room spend was at the venues on this panel within the W1 postcode then I reframe my request as follows:

Please tell me how much the BBC spent in total in financial year 2015/16 hiring external meeting/conference rooms.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/b...

Yours faithfully,
