Dear Police Scotland,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Police Scotland's handling of my FOI request 'Reports of Sexual Abuse at Aberlour House & Gordonstoun Schools from 1980 onwards'.

As the request was for numbers and not personal details can you kindly explain why this can lead to identifying individuals? Given the broad range of years I find this highly unlikely.

With regard to the cost being excessive, please provide a breakdown of your cost estimation.

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

Yours faithfully,

John Findlay
