Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

I have recently completed my complaint procedure with the DWP, which is now with the Independent Case Examiner, the case examiner has said I would like to remind you that if you wish to provide any further information or evidence in relation to my complaint, please send it to us and we will ensure it is considered once the investigation into your complaint starts.

Having read The Civil Service code for the DWP staff Under the Civil Service values which says ‘honesty’ is being truthful and open ‘objectivity’ is basing your advice and decisions on rigorous analysis of the evidence.
Also under the same code Under the Standards of behaviour
set out the facts and relevant issues truthfully, and correct any errors as soon as possible, and that the DWP staff must not ignore inconvenient facts or relevant considerations when providing advice or making decisions.

I would presume that the cost on the below information that I have requested has allredy been spent internally by the DWP in order that Complaint Resolution Manager could make his reply/decisions on rigorous analysis of the evidence, and keep within the Civil Service Code by setting out the facts and relevant issues truthfully.
If you ae unable to supply me my Freedom of information requests would this mean that the DWP Staff have also been unable to see the evidence in order to fullfill the Civil Service Code to make decisions on rigorous analysis of the evidence ?

I have set out below freedom-of-information-requests.

From my received letter dated 20 February 2017 from Lynne Wray State Pension Manager she made statements set out below.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

I am writing to request an internal review of Department for Work and Pensions's handling of my FOI request 'equalisation of State Pension Age 1950's Women'.

It is long overdue and Requires Answers as I require this information as I have a complaint with ICE and this also confirms the lack of information given by the DWP and also goes to Malministration as you are not in keeping with the time that your Department has to give in responding to such FOI Requests
