Dear FOI Enquiries,

I am disgusted that the BBC have chosen to ignore the law of the land and failed to respond to my request for the number of complaints received regarding the lack of reporting of veterans’ demonstrations. I wonder if there has been outside agencies.

Yours sincerely,

Rodney Stephens

Dear FOI Enquiries,

Why have you no replied to my request as required by law? What are you trying to hide? Your lack of response lends me to believe that you have no intention of supplying the information as it no doubt will lead to an embarrassment of the Corporation

Yours sincerely,

Rodney Stephens

FOI Enquiries, British Broadcasting Corporation

Dear Rodney

We are sorry to hear that you are unhappy with your response.

Please note that if you are unhappy with our out of scope response to your FOI request, our response explains your appeal rights.

Contact details are: Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF, tel: 0303 123 1113 or see http://www.ico.org.uk

Please note that should the Information Commissioner’s Office decide that the Act does cover this information, exemptions under the Act might then apply.

Kind regards

Dear FOI Enquiries,
My request to the BBC is now long overdue as required by law. I request that you do an internal review as to why. If I do not hear from you within seven days I will have to take this to the next higher authority and ask for a ministerial enquiry.

Yours sincerely,

Rodney Stephens
