Glasgow's Pay Arrangements



Glasgow City Council is getting very sloppy with its handling of FoI requests, in my experience anyway.

Because yet again I've had to submit a formal Review Request to force the City Council to get its finger out and provide and answer my original FoI request.

Here's my latest letter to the council's chief executive Annemarie O'Donnell - so much for open, transparent and efficient local government! 

If the City Council fails to respond, my next step will be to submit yet another appeal to the independent Scottish Information Commissioner (SIC).

Glasgow City Council

Dear Ms O'Donnell

FOISA Review Request

I refer to my letter dated 12 April 2017.

In view of the City Council's failure to respond within the 20 day time limit laid down by FOISA 2002, I would now like to submit a formal Review Request.  

I look forward to your reply and would be grateful if you could respond to me by e-mail at: markirvine@compuserve.com

Kind regards
