Dear Burnley Borough Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Burnley Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Disability Equality Scheme'.

Although I am grateful for your response, I would be grateful for a copy or the link to your current DES for 2010 - 2011. Since the link which you have provided takes me to the DES dated May 2009 and only includes actions up to March 2010.

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

I thank you in advance for your assistance and I look forward to hearing from you.
Yours faithfully,

Nicola Whitehill
