Dear High Speed Two (HS2) Limited,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of High Speed Two (HS2) Limited's handling of my FOI request 'No of FOI Requests to HS2 Ltd'.

The response that I received appears to be misleading when the reply states 'There is one FOI request that is overdue'.

For example, the following FOIs do not appear to have been fully addressed:
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/f...
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/h...

There are other examples to be found on WhatDoTheyKnow, so can you please clarify whether all the overdue FOIs marked on WhatDoTheyKnow are overdue or not.

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

Yours faithfully,

Graeme Amis
