Dear Barnsley 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 Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Internal vs External Recruitment Figures'.

It is mandatory during the BMBC external application process for individuals to supply the requested information. It is also possible, regarding internal applicants, to see how long new incumbents to a post have worked for BMBC in total. Due to this I do not accept that the information is impossible to retrieve as it is most certainly held & would require very simple database queries to extract.

With social mobility at a historic low, it is more important than ever to ensure that cronyism & nepotism are tackled within institutions & the public sector should be leading by example. I am shocked to see that at best, no effort will be made to provide statistics or at worst, there is a blatant intention to hide statistics.

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,

Amanda Leach
