Dear Sirs

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION (SCOTLAND) ACT 2002
REFERENCE: IM-FOI-2013-1179

With reference to the above request for information made pursuant to the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 by way of electronic correspondence to the Police Service of Scotland on 28 September 2013, it would appear that the Police Service of Scotland have as yet not provided a decision on the request.

Section 10(1) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 requires that a public authority responds to a request for information promptly, and in any event not later than the twentieth working day following receipt of the request. The twentieth working day following receipt of the above request would have been 25 October 2013.

In view of the Police Service of Scotland's apparent failure to comply with Section 10(1) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, it is now requested that the Police Service of Scotland conducts an Internal Review into the handling of this request for information, and in terms of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 reaches a decision on the request for information promptly, and not later than the twentieth working day following receipt of this requirement for review.

Yours faithfully,

Alistair P Sloan
