Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of British Broadcasting Corporation's handling of my FOI request 'Pay and Tax arrangements of top staff.'.

I have been refused details of the basic Tax arrangements of publicly funded individuals at the BBC on the grounds that this would break data protection. However, the information on who they are and what they are paid is a matter of public record and as such does not breech the data protection act. I am simply asking how are they taxed. VIA PAYE like the 99% of us, or via special personal arrangement. And If they are not being taxed like the majority then as a publicly funded institution it is in the public interest, especially given recent events, that these details be known.

I hope you will come to a more amicable decision, otherwise I will have to take this further.

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

Yours faithfully,

Luciano Giampaglia
