Dear Allen, Gemma (S,G&amp;C),

I actually disagree with the rationale for this as you and other councils have published contract values in the past. Please let me know how I can get this reviewed?

Yours sincerely,

Timothy

Clark, Alison (S,G&C), Staffordshire County Council

Dear Timothy

Thank you for your email below regarding your recent Freedom of Information request. We will now be treating this as a complaint.

We would normally expect to be able to deal with such matters within twenty working days. On some occasions it is not possible to answer this within twenty working days. If this is the case we will write to you again and explain any delay and when you can expect an answer. At present we have no reason to believe this matter cannot be dealt with within the timescale.

If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
