I have been asked to update (by the end of today) my earlier comparative report on the positioning of FOI Enquiry Officers within local authorities.  My previous research during August predictably produced few responses during that holiday period.

I would be very grateful for a quick note from colleagues in local authorities (especially local authorities in Wales) as to where in the corporate structure the most senior officer responsible for responding to FOI Requests for Information is or will be positioned.

Thank you
