Dear ‎Mr Read‏
 
Freedom of Information Act 2000
 
I am writing to ask you to clarify your request. This is because we need
further details from you in order to identify and locate the
information.Therefore I should be grateful if you would clarify the below
question: 

Please clarify what is meant by Children's Social Workers as there are
children's social work posts that are qualified social workers with social
worker responsibilities that do not have job titles that reference social
work (i.e. Senior Practitioners). 

I will not be able to take this matter further without this extra
information from you. Please let me know by 21/07/2019.
 
If I do not hear from you within the timeframe provided, I shall take it
that you do not wish to pursue this request and will consider the request
closed. 
 
 
Yours sincerely
