Dear Brian Leahy,

I am writing in response to your request for information, received 10th
July.

Yours sincerely,

DWP Central FoI Team

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
I resent the way that you have attempted to price me out of a democratic right to understand how I could be cheated out of the same regular annual pension increase those I worked with and who paid the same pension contributions as I did receive by making a freedom of Information Request regarding Tory legislation. I will be taking the matter further

Yours faithfully,

Brian M. Leahy
