Dear Newham Borough Council,

Can you also explain why responding to this request is taking so long?

Surely, as councillors are currently being paid for their portfolio responsibilities, they must have been provided with the details of the portfolios. As a result, the portfolios must be readily available.

Yours faithfully,

Mike Law

Newham Borough Council

Dear Newham Borough Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Newham Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Special Responsibility Portfolios'.

In your response to my request for special responsibility portfolios it is stated they are available on your web site; they are not. I responded by requesting that you actually forward copies of the portfolios. You have ignored that request. I am now requesting an internal review.

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,

Mike Law

Newham Borough Council
