Dear Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea,

I am dissatisfied with the level of information that has been provided in the three spreadsheets.

In each spreadsheet, the third column is frequently filled with "a gift". I would like you to update these spreadsheets with specific information on what these gifts were. You will see that my original request asked for "a brief summary" of the gifts, therefore simply writing "a gift" does not comply with my request. Furthermore you response does not explain why this information is not included, or why it would be exempt.

Yours sincerely,

Owen Sheppard
