Dear FOI,

Again let me take the time to thank you for the information you have provided, but again I am missing the info I requested. Can you please provide documents showing how much money Blackpool Council has received from the government each year from 2011 until 2022? I would also be interested in accounts for the years 2011 until 2022 alongside this profit and loss documentation.

I feel that whoever is dealing with these requests is deliberately withholding the requested information, it has been clearly requested twice now.

Yours sincerely,

Gerard Flynn

Dear Blackpool Borough Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Blackpool Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Money borrowed, grants etc'.

I requested information for grants, loans, lottery funding & Annual budget received from the government from 2001 until the present day. I received grants and then had to ask for the rest, I then received lottery funding and loans but not the annual budget funding from the government. I have asked again but have not received any reply. We are now 4 days past the deadline so can I ask that the information is fast-tracked.

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,

Gerard Flynn
