Dear InfoMgr, FinDMT,

I cannot make any sense of this jumble of words.

Please address each point in the original FOI request one by one and respond in a clear, concise and businesslike manner.

This is not a request for an internal review and I would expect you, as an award-winning "most improved council" to have this completed and returned very rapidly,

Best regards,

Paul Cardin

Dear InfoMgr, FinDMT,

Please disregard my previous email.

Upon downloading the information it became clear that you'd sent a .pdf file which had its formatting broken up by the WDTK system.

The result was a jumble of nonsensical words.

However, when the downloaded file was accessed, it presented the (partial) information as intended. I look forward to receiving the remainder of the information after the invoices have arrived from Liverpool Vision,

Yours sincerely,

Paul Cardin

Dear InfoMgr, FinDMT,

I await completion of your response,
