Dear Mr. Killip,

 

I write in response to your request for information disclosure under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 in which you requested information
concerning all corporate gifts and hospitality provided to directors
and/or officers of Yorkshire Forward by Langtree Group PLC and any
associated company (including, Langtree Artisan) since 1st January 2000.

 

Yorkshire Forward holds records of its corporate gifts and hospitality
from the financial year 2006/07 to the financial year 2010/11. I confirm
that Yorkshire Forward does not hold the information you request. This is
because no gifts or hospitality has been received by any Yorkshire Forward
director or officer from Langtree Group PLC or its associated companies.

 

I trust this information is helpful to you.

 

As this request has been logged as a request for information under the
Freedom of Information Act, Yorkshire Forward is obliged to offer you the
right to complain. If you are not satisfied with the way we have handled
your request, or if you are unhappy with our response, you can appeal via

Dear Rachel,

What about from 1999/2000 to 2006/7? My request was from the year 2000, not 2006.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Killip

Rachel Mason, Yorkshire Forward

Dear Mr. Killip,

As stated in our response, Yorkshire Forward holds records from the financial year 2006/07 we do not, therefore, hold any other records concerning corporate gifts and hospitality prior to this date.

I am sorry we cannot be of more help on this occasion but I trust this clarifies our response.

Kind Regards
Rachel Mason
