Dear Wigan Borough Council,

We have still not received a response to our FOI request we made in June. By law we should have received a response by now.

Please can you answer my request ASAP.

Yours faithfully,

Carl Tinker

Dear Wigan Borough Council,

I have still not received any response regarding my intial request
I made on June 7 2011.

Please can you respond as a matter of urgency as to why I have not
yet had a response, as is required by law.

Also please could you the requested information ASAP, due to the
length of time I have already waited for your response.

I hope to hear from you within 5 working days. After this I will be requesting an internal review to explain the delay.

Yours faithfully,

Carl Tinker

Dear Rita,

Thank you for the quick response. The reply you attached relates to a request we made about Residential Support Workers (thank you very much, once again, for your reply regarding this matter).

The one I refer to on my most recent email is regarding Qualified social workers within the council.
If you could supply this information it would be appreciated.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further queries.

Yours faithfully,

Carl Tinker

Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council

Carl,

Sorry to be a nuisance but do you have an I.D. reference number which would help me search.

Dear Rita,

Ive just checked through all my responses and we do not appear to have received an initial response to our Qualified Social worker query (we did get one for the residential social worker query - ID2528, but i presume this will not be associated with the QSW query above)

Yours faithfully,

Carl Tinker

Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council

Carl,

I cannot find a request for 'Qualified Social Worker' . It is strange
that you did not receive an acknowledgement and I.D. reference number.
To save further time can you re-send and I will get it logged
immediately.

Dear Rita,

Thank you for your quick repsonses today. The request I would like answered is at the top of this thread.

Yours faithfully,

Carl Tinker

Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council

Carl,

Is it the exact same request as for the residential social worker but
substituted by Qualified Social Worker?

I want to make sure so there will be no further delays.
