Dear High Speed Two (HS2) Limited,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews. As it seems you have given up any pretense of bothering to reply to FOIA requests in line with the legislated timescales, I am now writing to request an internal review of High Speed Two (HS2) Limited's handling of my FOI request 'How will HS2 connect 30 million people'.

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,

Joe Rukin

Dear Joe Rukin,

Dear Joe Rukin,

 

Thank you for your email to HS2 Ltd. We are considering your request under
the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and aim to reply as soon as possible
and no later than 01 July 2019.

 

Your reference number for the request is FOI-19-3264.

 

Please note that your requests -  this one 3264 and your earlier request
FOI-19-3251 (Request and acknowledgement copied at the end of this thread)
– are being processed under the Freedom of Information Act as one
request.  This is because where more than one request is received for the
same or similar information, section 5(2) of the FOI and Data Protection
(Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations 2004 allows public authorities to
aggregate requests and respond to them together.  We have therefore
aggregated your requests and you will receive a single response under
reference 3264.

 

Yours sincerely,

Dear J Palmer,

So you are now deciding that the request I originally submitted on the 12th of February, which I have now asked for an internal review of due to your failure/refusal to respond, is now being treated as a brand new request and bunched together with a separate one?

Both of your responses today claim they have attached the previous correspondence. They have not, but I have. Start here:

Yours sincerely,

Joe Rukin

Mr Rukin

 

Apologies for any confusion caused. 

 

These requests have not been combined and you will receive a separate
response for each.

 

Thank you
