East Dunbartonshire Council

Dear Sir/Madam

I must advise that, as your request did not include your Full name, it is
strictly speaking not a valid one under the Freedom of Information
(Scotland) Act 2002. While we have no wish to hold up your enquiry it could
pose problems if you are dissatisfied with the response provided by the
local authority. The danger is that the absence of a surname means that you
are unable to appeal to the Scottish Information Commissioner if you are
unhappy with the information given in response to your request. While we
would hope that that this would not be the case, it would not be
appropriate for the Council to process your request in its current form. I
would therefore ask that you resubmit your request to us along with your
name in the body of the text.

If you are dissatisfied with the way in which East Dunbartonshire Council
responded to your request, you are entitled to require the Council to
review its decision. The review will be handled by staff who were not
involved in the original decision. Please note that in order for a review
to take place you must:

- Lodge a written requirement for a review within 40 working days of the
date of this letter
- Include a correspondence address and a description of the original
request and the reason why you are dissatisfied.
- Address your request to the Freedom of Information Officer:

Stephen Armstrong
Freedom of Information/Data Protection Officer
East Dunbartonshire Council
Telephone No. 0141-578 8057
Fax No. 0141-578 8117
[East Dunbartonshire Council request email]

The review will be handled by staff who were not involved in the original
decision. You will receive notice of the results of the review within 20
working days of receipt of your request. The notice will state the
findings of the review as well as details of how to appeal to the Scottish
Information Commissioner if you are still dissatisfied with the Council?s
response. You must request an internal review by the Council before a
complaint can be directed to the Scottish Information Commissioner.

Regards

Louise Kenny
Information Management Assistant
