Dear foi,

Thank you for your response about fixed penalty notices. However, your reply was incomplete. You did not reply to questions 2 and 3 of my request – Please do so now. I have reproduced the questions below for ease:

2. How many people have been prosecuted for breach of the PSPO for sleeping in Wrexham Bus Station or a public toilet?

3. How many people have been: (a) fined by a magistrate; and/or (b) issued with a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) for sleeping in Wrexham Bus Station or a public toilet in breach of the PSPO?

As a full reply to my FOIA is overdue, I look forward to hearing from you within 7 days, failing which I shall make a complaint to the ICO against your failure to provide the requested information within 20 working days.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully

Liberty
