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 Payola Neill Report'.
Twicw I have asked for a digitally searchable copy of the 'BBC Payola Neill Report', twice the digitally searchable part has been ignored.
Provision of a digitally searchable copy is your duty under the act and this guidance makes that clear.
https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/foi...

Please supply me with a digitally searchable copy of the report as request and carry out an internal review as to why the BBC is deliberately delaying this reasonable request.

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,
