Dear Information Governance (LAA),

I have asked you a question about exceptional funding under s10 LASPO under the Freedom of Information Act but the reply is overdue. Can you please deal with it as soon as possible? I would rather have a reply than ask for an internal review so perhaps you can let me know what is happening.

Yours sincerely,

Lucy Reed
