Dear Haringey Borough Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Haringey Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Disclosable Pecuniary Interest - Cllr Alan Strickland and Grainger PLC'.

I asked very specific questions for information and was given a link and a document which it was felt by the responder to be self explanatory.

I would like a review into the response.

I would suggest the FOI team look in other FOIs they have responded to around MIPIM where they have released documents that contradict the response to this.

I would like my requests for information and my right to that information provided.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/d...

Yours faithfully,

Robert Wilson

Dear Mr Wilson,
Can I suggest you should raise your concerns directly with Cllr Strickland. Like you appear to have been, I was also puzzled by the absence of any reference to MIPIM - information which is already in the public domain on this website.

I am sure that Cllr Strickland would be pleased to help you with information; and to dispel any concerns you may have.
