On 10 July I asked ‘Has NE consented culling of Lesser Black-backed Gull in the Bowland Fells SSSI this year?’
On 9 August, after turning this into an EIR request (Request 3929), you used Regulation 12 (5)(B) – Administration of Justice to justify refusing to answer this question. You did not state that you would at any stage answer my question, and you did not indicate how long the investigation would continue.
Therefore, I am now repeating my question ‘Has NE consented culling of Lesser Black-backed Gull in the Bowland Fells SSSI this year?’.
Maybe your response this time will either be a full response or will give sufficient information to save us both the trouble of having this rather disjointed conversation.
As you know, I have requested an internal review of your response to my other two questions and you have indicated that you will reply by 23 October. I await your response with interest.
