Dear Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council,

What are those links you have attached, they don't give the information sought.
Please put the response in a more accessible format.

Additionally you have no right to put on restrictions as you have attempted with the section you have numbered [3], then a lot of unfounded legal blurb.

You have not provided a response, please do so.

Yours faithfully,

Tatt J

Dear J Tatt,

Thank you for your e-mail below. The response to your request is available via this link https://knowsleytransaction.mendixcloud.... you just need to click on it to view the response. I have checked the link and can confirm the response is visible.

For clarification the "legal blurb at 3" is the Knowsley disclaimer and is just standard text that is sent on the bottom of every e-mail.

I hope this clarifies your concerns below.

Dear Freedom of Information,

What was the point of the nonsense of a separate "confidential" link?

What a bunch of timewaters.

You only needed to facilitate the response wiith the answers!
