Dear Home Office,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Home Office's handling of my FOI request 'Freedom of Information requests and internal reviews'.

My request relates to HO policy which should be at hand - if ti takes over 24 man hours to obtain this information, I am especially concerned as to how the overworked HO staff are able to undertake their duties in compliance with the law!`

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

Yours faithfully,

BritCits
