Dear South Yorkshire Police,

Your response to my request has not yet been answered. You have failed to meet the timescale as mandated by The Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Please could you reply to my request as soon as possible.

Many thanks.

Yours faithfully,

Will Scott

..and I'm still waiting - since 23 April 2004 - for you to begin an investigation into my father, Mr Ralph Winstanley's - very well and officially documented - murder. Perhaps you might look into that at the same time?

FOI, South Yorkshire Police

Dear Mr Scott

I am very sorry that you have had to chase our response to your Freedom of Information request. You will already be aware from previous correspondence from this office, that like other forces, we have been overwhelmed with FOI requests this year. Every effort is being made to try and resolve this as swiftly as possible but it is not something which will improve immediately.

I can tell you, however, that my colleague Martha Robinson has progressed your request, but is currently away from the office and will not be returning until mid-way through next week. She will therefore not be in a position to respond to your request until at least then.

I am sorry that I cannot give you anything more concrete at this stage and offer you my sincere apologies for the delay.

Regards

Will my father, Ralph Winstanley's murder also be looked into when your colleague comes back off her holidays? I do hope so.

If you check your records you will see that we have been forced - by South Yorkshire Police intransigence - to make many (thus far inadequately answered) requests, since his murder on 23 April 2004.

A full and fair investigation will do. It could begin with interviewing the witnesses, some of which have never yet been approached by the force.

Dear South Yorkshire Police,

Any update? This request is well overdue and you have failed to meet the timescale as mandated by The Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Yours faithfully,

Will Scott

I can tell you, that due to annual leave, I am the sole FOI Decision Maker at the moment. I am endeavouring to get to your request as soon as possible.

Still waiting even though over a month ago a colleague said that Martha had the information!
