Dear Haringey Borough Council,

The information provide is less than requested, but I will come back to that another time.

As a priority please provide fuller details on who ISIS, Nace, and St James are? The council might be very close to them. but the public require the full names of these companies to find out who they are.

This is a failing of the response to my request and should be answered immediately.

Yours faithfully,

Martin Ball
