This request is overdue, Spencer, please demand that they respond immediately or request an internal review!

They are dodging people's right to ask questions as per usual!

Dear FOI Enquiries,

This request is some time overdue now. Please update me on progress.

Yours sincerely,

Spencer Count

Indeed, They know this info will be very useful to the truth movements

Dear FOI Enquiries,

I do not wish to shout at you but this request is LONG OVERDUE. Furthermore, you have ignored a reminder.

Please either fulfil the request or give valid grounds for refusing it.

Yours sincerely,

Spencer Count

Another deliberate attempt by the BBC to flout the law and ignore revealing answers that show them for what they are: pigs at a money trough.

As they are ignoring your requests for an internal review then you can forward this as an official complaint to the Information Commissioner.

Despite the truckloads of licence fee cash pulling up at BBC HQ everyday, the FOI department will lay claim to understaffing - when the truth is they are protecting their paymasters from accountability to the people they rob via the thugs at Capita.

Refer to the ICO.

May I suggest you ask for a review of the handling of this request? I believe the BBC owes you an explanation of why it has taken so long to (not yet) answer your question. There is a handy link at the top of the page:

"You can complain by requesting an internal review".

You can also, as has been suggested, take the matter up with the Information Commissioner's Office.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

I am writing to request an internal review of British Broadcasting Corporation's handling of my FOI request 'BBC trading companies'.

It seems quite extraordinary that the BBC has yet to come up with any response in more than three months. It has also ignored reminders.

I am requesting an Internal Review be undertaken due to your non-compliance with the law as per FOIA 2000.

I look forward to receiving your confirmation a review will now take place.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:
