Dear Mr Walley

 

Please accept my apologies in this regard.

 

It would appear as though a number of emails sent on Friday did not have
their attachments included due to an ICT issue.

 

I have attached the response to this email, please let me know as soon as
possible if you cannot see this.

Dear FOI Officer,

Your response to my FOI question does not answer the question on what equipment the authority has purchased and specifically deployed recently on the A191 West Allotment section.

The link to the manufacturers website is to a general catalogue of products, each capable of being customised to the buyers requirements.

Can you please resubmit my FOI request to the department concerned for the full information on the device that was last deployed on the A191 West Allotment section, be this a speed sign or SID.

Given these devices were procured from new recently I assume a procurement order will exist detailing the authorities requirements?

Yours sincerely,

John Walley
