“Under the Freedom of Information Act, please could I have a copy of any internal guidance document that you have for council officers on how to draft replies to correspondence.
I am primarily interested in guidance for council officers on how to draft responses for cabinet members. These responses would be sent in response to enquiries made by AM’s and MPs. Your cabinet office may be able to help with this. This guidance might include templates, a list of “dos and don’ts”, guidance on data protection / confidentiality and guidance on the style which individual cabinet members prefer.”
Information not held. Devon County Council does not have any internal guidance documents for Council Officers on how to draft replies to correspondence, nor does it have any templates for responding to MP enquiries. Replies will use standard formatted letter templates intended for general use.
