Dear Andover Town Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Andover Town Council's handling of my FOI request 'Interim Town Clerk'.

I do not accept that the salary range can be withheld under Section 40. A clerk, interim or otherwise is a public official, and as such their salary banding (note, not their exact salary) is an entirely justified request. Furthermore the terms of their appointment, i.e. length of employment, etc etc are also related a public official, and I would argue that it is in the public interest that such arrangements are known and should be made available in the interests of transparency.

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,

Magnus Ponsonby-Talbot
