Dear Tower Hamlets Borough Council,

Can you publish the financial information that they gave when they applied for the grant?

Was the council aware that they were raising money through crowdfunding and that they have raised over £19,000. https://www.spacehive.com/betarbangla ?

Can you also tell me what involvement did Abdul Ullah have in this application if any as he hosts a show on the station?

Can you tell me which officer decided to withhold the application from publication?

Can you tell me did the council consider it's impact on the local media market and the level of listeners to the station?

Yours faithfully,

Abdul Hai

Dear London Borough of Tower Hamlets,

I believe that Tower Hamlets Council should publish the application form as many other bodies like Arts Coouncil England do in a redacted form.

Yours sincerely,
