Dear DWP freedom-of-information-requests,

I sent a Freedom of Information request on 1st August 2014, and received your automatic reply. By law, you should normally have responded by 2nd September 2014.

I have not yet received a response but will, however, accept that a response within the next 5 (calendar) days still meets your legislative obligation.

I trust the additional 5 (calendar) days I have allowed will provide sufficient time for you to respond to my request. If, however, this revised deadline is not met, I'm sure you will appreciate that I will have to consider taking the matter further.

Yours sincerely,

Shirley Coult

Dear DWP freedom-of-information-requests,

You have failed to reply to my request dated 1st August 2914 which, by Law, you should normally have responded by 2nd September. I wrote to you on 3rd September to prompt a reply, and allowed a further 5 (calendar) days for you to meet your legislative requirement.

I have still not received any response - other than the automatic notification that the original request had been received. I will therefore raise with:
* the Information Commissioner; and
* my MP
I will also copy to :
* Robert Devereux;
*Noel Shanahan; and
*Angela Macdonald

Yours sincerely,

Shirley Coult

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Department for Work and Pensions's handling of my FOI request 'effect of 3 month residency policy on JSA claimants'.

I submitted my request on 1st August 2014 and, by law, this should have been responded to by 2nd September. To date, I have not received a reply, despite having sent you reminders. I can not therefore provide you with any/your internal reference number.

Two earlier requests for similar information were correctly refused as I had failed to supply a "real name"(FOI references: 3407 and 3408). The request of 1st August corrected this error.

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

I trust that on this occasion you will provide a response.

Yours faithfully,

Shirley Coult
