Dear Vicky Mays,

Thank you for you for supplying the data I initially requested. However, you failed to respond to my request for an internal review, made on 15 November 2010, as to why you missed the legal deadline for supplying this information. Will you confirm that you are undertaking an internal review as if you are not I will be compelled to contact the Information Commissioner.

Yours sincerely,

Harry Raffal

Request for Internal Review sent to email provided

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to request an internal review of how my Freedom of Information request was handled. Full details of the request can be found at http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/ca.... Please note I also directly contacted the University through Dr Wilcox and was told by her that I would be contacted as a matter of urgency regarding this matter.
The response I received to my request was severely delayed and in breach of the time the University was compelled to answer me by. As I originally requested an internal review on15 November I believe it reasonable to assume you have twenty working days from this point and that I should not be subjected to any inconvenience by deficiencies in your handling of the matter.
I request that the details of the internal review be provided to me via the website whatdotheyknow.com (as I understand from my reading of the freedom of information act I am allowed to make such request and the university can only deny it if they have a substantial reason such as cost, should your reading of the act be differently please contact me)
Please let me know when you receive this email, if you could also issue me with a reference number regarding this matter I would be extremely grateful.

Yours,

Harry Raffal
