Dear Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council,

You have still not responded to my FOI request dated 16 September 2018. I feel disappointed that I am having to send this reminder to you, just as I had to do when I requested similar information on 2 previous occasions. I sincerely hope it will not be necessary for me to request an internal review in order to spur you on to provide the information I have requested. I look forward to receiving your response very soon.

Yours faithfully,

Ms Wilkes

Sandwell MBC, Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council
