Dear Gambling Commission,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Gambling Commission's handling of my FOI request 'Sale of £10 national lottery scratchards'.

The response is over a month overdue and failure to respond is breaking the law, which isn't ideal from a UK regulator.

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

Yours faithfully,
