Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of British Broadcasting Corporation's handling of my FOI request 'Disciplinary measures in relation to breaking impartiality rules on social media'.

The answer pointing to the recent select committee appearance does not specifically answer my question,
So perhaps you could provide an answer in writing.

Many thanks.
