Dear Jane L Jones,

Thank you for the reply. Unfortunately the link you have provided only gives details of foster care allowances for 2010/11. Please could you confirm your allowances for 0-4 year olds for 2012/13?

Many thanks.

Yours sincerely,

Robert Cann

Dear Jane L Jones,

Please could I draw your attention to the fact that this request is now overdue - I should have received all the information I required by 21st July, but I have received only an out of date link for the foster care allowances for 2011-12, rather than 2012-13 as I originally requested.

I look forward to hearing from you very soon.

Thank you

Yours sincerely,

Robert Cann

Jane L Jones, Tower Hamlets Borough Council
