have been licensed by Sunderland City Council to undertake on residential


(a) house to house collections -

The other three holders of a House to House Collection licence are private

I hope this is satisfactory.  If, however, you are dissatisfied with our
response to your request for information, you can ask for the decision to
be reviewed in reply to this letter.  The review will be removed from the

Information Governance Officer, Governance Services, Civic Centre, PO Box

You are of course entitled to apply to the Information Commissioner at any
time, although the Commissioner will not usually investigate until the
public authority’s internal review procedure has been concluded.
