I placed a Freedom of Information in Cumbria for information re-Common Purpose Graduates and cost of training. I was told that my request is vexatious and they failed to meet the lawful time period, for which they have apologized. I have still not been given the information I asked for, which should be readily available to any member of the public. Even as a retired Town Councillor they will not provide me with the information about how tax payers money is being spent and on whom. Clearly Cumbria County Council have alot to hide and are currently operating corruptly.
