Dear West Wales Regional Partnership Board,

As this request is now "long overdue" (for which I understand the reasons!) do you have any estimate of when a response might be recieved?

Thank you,

I am writing to request an internal review of West Wales Regional Partnership Board's handling of my FOI request 'Use of COMPUTER-TRANSLATION technologies (e.g. Google Translate(TM), Microsoft Translator(TM) etc.)'.

This request is very long overdue and I've not recieved ANY communication about it yet - including no rejection if it's thought that it doesn't apply to WWRPB. A response would be appreciated.
