Can anyone see the funny side of this ...
DNS publish reports about dwp, dwp don't respond and throw their toys out the pram and refuse to answer DNS questions.
Member of the Public ask DWP to clarify their complaint with DNS
DWP don't respond!

Daniel McMorrow

Dear DWP freedom-of-information-requests,

I would like an answer please. Your complaint with DNS is they publish news about the poor service offered by DWP
They argue it's because you don't respond. By not responding to the FiO your proving them righth and breaking the law.

Yours sincerely,

Daniel McMorrow
