Slough Borough Council
Hallo Slough Council,
Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.
I am writing to request an internal review of Slough Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'SUA : Chief Exec (Acting) email about Gurpreet Anand departing'.
I am alarmed that Slough Council supplied mobile phones are used to send sexually explicit images yet when I enquire about a related matter my FOI request is refused "for containing profanity".
Once again poorly performing council staff transferred at public expense to poorly performing Arvato appear to lack the skills to properly operate the council's computer systems. I do not believe prolonging this incredible mess is in the public interest.
A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:
I remain most disappointed with the council's performance and attitude and lack optimism about possible improvement.
Thank you for your email.
Providing excellent customer services is one of the council’s key
