Dear Westminster City Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Westminster City Council's handling of my FOI request 'Duty to refer statistics'.

The data provided is incomplete. Please provide full data requested. If there were no referrals made from a specific authority for a quarter, please clarify this rather than leaving the data set blank. This is particularly disappointing as the response was significantly delayed.

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,

Andy McCarthy
