Dear foi,

Sorry for not replying sooner, your answer is not good.

1 I can’t find any payments on the link provided
2 you havent sent any reports , notes and those items listed or even mentioned them , whether you hold them or not.
3 I’ve searched the website and there are no reports online
4 I’ve checked what you have said about checking invoices etc at the year end but I think this answer is misleading as I’ve read up on this and you can only ask for information for that year not previous years.You must know about that
5 I’m interested in the reports BNP have produced for the council about centre square Middlesbrough.

You must know the information is available and just feel you are not being as helpful as you should be. Please will you answer my request properly and send me the info please.you should do this straight away as you have passed the time allowed.

Yours sincerely,

Chris Meeks
