Dear London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine's handling of my FOI request 'Working overseas for personal reasons'.

Despite my reminders, I note that you have not confirmed or denied whether the authority holds this information, and have not applied an exemption that would remove this obligation.
As you may be aware, Section 1(1) of the FOI Act (https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/200...) states that "Any person making a request for information to a public authority is entitled to be informed in writing by the public authority whether it holds information of the description specified in the request".
I would be grateful if you could clarify whether or not this information is held, or specify which exemption of the duty to confirm or deny you are applying.

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,

Allen R. Smith
