Dear Liverpool City Council,

Dear Liverpool City Council,
Dear Liverpool City Council,
It is crystal clear that LCC responds to FOI's depending on the the FOI requester rather than the date the FOI was put in.....eg:
FOI 6131890 - date of request - 17th Dec. / response - 22nd Dec
FOI 5916349 - date of request - 23rd Nov. / response 22nd Dec
FOI 5399949 - date of request - 5th Oct / response 3rd Nov
Nikhil Prabhu - date of request - 22nd Oct / response 1st Dec

I put in this FOI request on the 17th August........DO NOT IGNORE IT.........A RESPONSE PLEASE
LAST TIME I WILL BE ASKING

Yours sincerely,

Josie Mullen

Dear Liverpool City Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Liverpool City Council's handling of my FOI request 'Mayoral Recommendation -Tarmacademy Training Centre - Part 2'.

[ GIVE DETAILS ABOUT YOUR COMPLAINT HERE ]

I note that many FOIs [sometimes quite complex] have been responded to within days or weeks, and yet this FOI request has not been answered after FIVE MONTHS. Please investigate why LCC seem to pick and choose who they respond to in a timely fashion. There seems to be no logic in LCC's procedures. Responses do not seem to be predicated on the dates the requests are sent, nor on the complexity of the request.
I am sending a copy of all my outstanding FOI's to the City Solicitor.
I would appreciate a response to this FOI as soon as possible.

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

Yours faithfully,

Josie Mullen

Dear Information Requests,
This is an absolute cover-up. So I'm supposed to go through every Cabinet and other committee meeting to try and find when the decision was made to advantage CEMEX, Kings Construction with the acquisition of £4.2 million of land.........while dropping the Tarmacademy initiative which was supposed to be the reason for buying the land. There was supposed to be a 1000 young people trained over 5 years.
Hang your heads in shame - misinformation, collusion and the abandoning of all principles have become a recognised by-word for Liverpool City Council

Yours sincerely,

Josie Mullen
