Dear Haringey Borough Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Haringey Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Independent Living Fund' in light of the fact the majority of London councils do hold the relevant data and I'm puzzled that Haringey's senior management team cannot answer this question:

The government committed to four years’ worth of funding through the former ILF Recipient Grant from 2016/17 until 2019/20. Has your London borough:
• Ring-fenced this to care and support for former ILF recipients?
• Ring-fenced to adult social care?
• Not ring-fenced?

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

Yours faithfully,

Jon Abrams

Haringey Borough Council
