Jolly hard to raise issues with the ICO about their own procedures

Dear Gemma

I find your response somewhat disingenuous because you specifically asked me if I wish you to consider any other complaints and as you are aware, I have highlighted a number of complaints against the ICO which I wish you to consider. Therefore, why are you rowing back from your own original requests for me to provide further complaints by now claiming you are conducting inquiries into the 15 vexatious decisions ONLY, which were made on the same day by your Steven Dickinson.

Furthermore, you have not responded to my specific questions of your line manager?

I repeat that question, who is your line manager please, is it Steven Dickinson?

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield

Case Reference Number FS50532725

Dear Mr Dransfield,

I write to confirm that I have received your recent emails. I am only able to investigate whether or not section 14 FOIA was applied correctly to the 15 FOIA requests you made to the ICO between 30 December 2013 and 21 January 2014. I am unable to investigate anything other than this. As soon as my investigation is complete in relation to this, a Decision Notice will be issued.

Yours sincerely

Gemma Garvey
