Dear Ms Peacher

In response to your request for an internal review I find,

1) Your request was received by the council on 21 December 2016, and
received a response on the next working day, 22 December.
2) The council's response stated that it did not hold the information
requested, as per our duties under section 1(1)(a) of the Freedom of
Information Act.
3) Cambridge City Council do not provide Children's Services, as this
service is the responsibility of Cambridgeshire County Council. We
therefore do not hold information regarding the number of looked after
children in the Cambridgeshire area. Our response of the 22 December
stated this, along with an e mail address to contact the relevant
authority ([email address]). The council provided this advice
and assistance as per our duties under section 16 of the Freedom of
Information Act.

As stated in our response of 22 December, the City Council do not hold
this information. This information is most likely to be held by
Cambridgeshire County Council, and their FOI team can be contacted at
[email address].

If you are not happy with the way in which your request for a review has
been dealt with you can contact the Information Commissioner. The
Information Commissioner’s address is:
