Dear LBS FOI,
Simon Taylor worked for the council and was conducting an enforcement investigation. Mary Morrissey has recently referred to this investigation in a recent correspondence with myself so you can ask Mary what this refers too.

What I am looking for is the latest version of the investigation report and any correspondence conducted by Simon Taylor on this matter.

Presumably other people have been working on this investigation since Simon Taylor left so I am looking for any correspondence whatsoever concerning this enforcement investigation.

Yours sincerely,

Peter Alfrey
