Dear Birmingham City Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Birmingham City Council's handling of my FOI request 'Civil Litigation against Birmingham City Council'.

I understand that the legal department or the council monitoring officer will have to keep a list of litigation cases. Also the auditors, Grant Thornton will require and be provided with this list so that it can audit note 37 of the Birmingham City Council Statement of Accounts which relates to contingent liabiliites.

It is also a requirement under the Code of Practice on Managing Records issued under
section 46 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 that an authority should know where all its
information is located.
Please provide the information requested immediately
