Dear Northamptonshire County Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Northamptonshire County Council's handling of my FOI request 'Who&#39;s who in Children&#39;s Services'.

[I HAVE RECEIVED NO RESPONSE AND IT SEEMS THAT AN IR MAY BE THE ONLY WAY TO TRIGGER ACTIVITY.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/w...

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ms Grigore,

 

Thank you for your email.

 

Your original request was not logged formally under FOIA 2000 as we
believed that the enquiry could be answered by Children’s Services using
business as usual. Your email was forwarded to them on 04/08/2017 and we
were unaware that no response had been sent until you contacted our team
last week.

 

Please see the attached in response to your first question. I have not yet
received a response to question 2 (Please identify who within Children’s
Services and your Human Resources Department takes lead responsibility on
social worker recruitment) and have sent another urgent chaser to the
service area.

Please accept my sincere apologies for the delay in replying to your
request, I will continue to chase Children’s Services for a reply to
question 2 and get back to you as soon as possible.

 

Kind regards

Dear Freedom of Information,

The answer to question 2? That is a simple one and takes a phone call to the CS Director's office and HR.

Yours sincerely,

Apologies for the delay in our reply.
