Dear Department for Communities (Northern Ireland),

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Department for Communities (Northern Ireland)'s handling of my FOI request 'Selection and appointment of Charity Commissioners'.

I accept your answer, and have decided to split my request to make them more narrow in scope.

I wish the internal review to consider only my question number 5.
Gathering this information should be of no cost, and should absorb little time as it will be contained in the Commissioners CVs when they applied for the positions. If no CVs were submitted please state on what basis were the commissioners chosen?

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,

Trevor McKee
