Dear Newham Borough Council,

Please note a response to this FOI is now more than one month overdue.

Now that the reign of fear in Newham has ended with the departure of: "Dear Leader," we expect FOI response time from your department to improve substantially, given the clear political commitment to openness and transparency communicated by New Mayor Rokhsana Fiaz.

Please provide a response to this request ASAP, and I expect the stonewalling tactics to cease herewith.

Yours faithfully,

Joel M Benjamin

Newham Borough Council
