Dear Board of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Board of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service's handling of my FOI request 'Gender balance on public boards in Scotland'.

From the links and information you provided I am afraid I am not able to discern the numbers of men and women on the board at November 2015.

I'd be grateful if you could supply this information.

Yours faithfully,

Ally Tibbitt
