Dear Neil McKay,

Your response to my FOI request dated 11 July 2009 is now overdue. Can you please provide the information I requested or advise me as to why the council's response has been delayed.

Yours sincerely,

A White

McKay Neil, North Lanarkshire Council

Dear Sir/Madam,

Request for Information

I refer to your e‑mails of 11 July and 18 August seeking current
information relative to child protection and electively home educated
children.

In the first instance, I should acknowledge that this response falls
outwith the statutory deadline outlined in the Freedom of Information
legislation and for this I apologise.

Returning to you request and having investigated, I can advise that this
authority has a child protection register rather than a risk register, and
it is on this basis that my response to your questions numbered 1 to 7
follows hereafter.

(1) 52

(2) 19

(3) 31

(4) 0

(5) 0

(6) 0

(7) 0

I hope this information is sufficient for your purpose.  If, however, you
require further information – or I can assist in any other way –
please let me know.

Yours faithfully,

Neil McKay
