Dear Scottish Further and Higher Education Funding Council,

Under FOISA I would like to request all internal and external correspondence between SFC and the Scottish Government regarding the rolled over surplus reserves that were to be re-profiled from SFC to Scottish Government in 2016/17.

I refer you to an earlier request I made at

This will give you a fuller understanding of the recorded information I am requesting.

Please acknowledge receipt of this request and I shall look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Thank you again for your help and assistance in this matter.

Yours faithfully,

John Gallacher

Dear Scottish Further and Higher Education Funding Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Scottish Further and Higher Education Funding Council's handling of my FOI request 'Correspondence Request'.

Thank you for your response, I would be grateful if you could provide the information you send me in an intelligible format for my understanding, rather than a link to another request where it appears you have attempted to frustrate the requester,

I have a protected characteristic under the equalities act, I am an elderly gentleman with dyslexia and a reasonable adjustment for this would be for your assistance in collating the information I required in a format that is easily understood my myself.

I trust that you appreciate that elderly and vulnerable members of society have the same rights to information, and that information should be produced to manner that they can understand, there is a concept of plain English without diluting the substance of the information requested. Many members of the public are not through no fault of their own informed enough about their rights, and your administration does not hold a flawless record in operating in the spirit of FOISA

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Yours faithfully,

John Gallacher
