Dear Greater London Authority,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Greater London Authority's handling of my FOI request 'Communication between the Mayor of London and Margaret Hodge (2)'.

There is a public interest in knowing the background to a Mayoral decision to pay £9,500 of taxpayers' money to a friend. The documents and emails that informed this decision are being concealed. The Mayor has been reluctant to release this information in any other way. The public will want to know why.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...
