Dear Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Halifax Music Heritage Trail'.

There are several omissions in the response you said, including details of the correspondence between CMBC and Michael Ainsworth, to whom you refer to as the "business proprietor" in your correspondence. It is common knowledge that Mr Ainsworth is the person you mention, yet you do not supply the correspondence, or any recorded details of it, despite the fact that you refer to this information in your response.

Please supply us with all correspondence between CMBC, Michael Ainsworth, Trevor Simpson and the "business proprietor" you mention in your response (if you insist on hiding Mr Ainsworth's identity, for some inexplicable reason).

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

Yours faithfully,

Calderdale Against Corruption

Dear Suzanne Prescott,

We are thoroughly dissatisfied with your response and the incredible claim that all emails between Michael Ainsworth and the council have conveniently disappeared.

As such, can you provide information relating to CMBC's email retention policies? As the deleted emails are likely to have contained information linked to potential fraud, we would also like to know why they were deleted.

Yours sincerely,

Calderdale Against Corruption
