Dear Ms John,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Carmarthenshire Council's handling of my FOI request 'Consultancy expenditure' as I have not received a response.
The council's response is long overdue and, under all circumstances, in breach of the law.
