Dear Education Scotland,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Education Scotland's handling of my FOI request 'Supplier Meetings Information'.

I do not accept the response of "no meeting requests have been accepted with Oxido employees" since there is information in the public domain that would appear to contradict this. Simply trying to avoid my clear request is both unhelpful and possibly obstructive.

To avoid me having to submit further FOI requests on this topic please review the information provided and respond accordingly.

Yours faithfully,

Angus Bethun

Education Scotland

Dear Mr Bethun
 
I refer to my colleagues email of 4 October 2017 about your request for a
review of our response to your request under the Freedom of Information
(Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) for Supplier Meetings Information.
 
From my initial look at this case, I have established that, in order to
identify and locate the information that you asked for, we should have
asked you for some further information.  It would be helpful if you could
supply us with the information you have found in the public domain. 
 
I apologise that we did not ask you for this information before.  If you
could provide it now, that would help me to complete my review.  In the
meantime, I will continue with the review and let you know the outcome by
31 October 2017.
 
If you wish to discuss any of the above, please contact me.
 
Your sincerely
 
Mary Hoey
Assistant Director
Education Scotland

Dear Education Scotland,

There is various information in the public domain including numerous social media spaces which would indicate that your previous response on this matter is factually incorrect. It is not for me to evidence this information or point you to its location but a matter for you to simply answer the original request.

It should not be too difficult for you to answer the simple request previously submitted and this clarification from you would indicate further avoidance in the hope that I will cease this request for transparency in the actions of public organisations and their employees.

Yours faithfully,

Angus Bethun

Education Scotland
