The Council may not yet have decided who will get them and may simply answer "no" to your follow up.

You could ask how they intend to allocate them?

Did you mean "contract" not "contact"?

Well done

Hello Peter,
I requested contact which opens the question up to various avenues!
Due to the ticket allocation still taking place the follow up would be more appropriate at a later date to get a more clear response.

Dear Mr Nesbitt,

Hillingdon Borough Council purchased tickets to the value of £19,530
A great piece of PR for the Council funded by the taxpayer!

Raj Patel left an annotation ()

Complete waste of taxpayers money in an attempt by Hillingdon Council to gain PR.

More cost will be incurred when allocation takes place which no doubt will be splashed all over the local press.

Saving jobs at Hillingdon or Olympic tickets!

I find this insulting to anyone who has lost their job at Hillingdon Council.
