So they have no records of FOI requests at all - surely that's what this response says..

Otherwise , they would probably have denied it on grounds of the cost of reviewing these records..

Peter left an annotation ()

They confirmed that they had received 10 requests. Whay they didn't have was any record of how much time had been spent on dealing with those requests and the associated costs.

Which then begs the question as to how Joco can regularly trot out the various costs he associates with managing FOI reuests. Obviously, makes it up as he goes along. Just like we thought.
