Dear Inverclyde Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Inverclyde Council's handling of my FOI request 'Brexit planning'.

I would be very surprised if Inverclyde Council did not hold material that fell within the scope of this request.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Yours faithfully,

Ally Tibbitt
