Written answers (Question to Social)

The representation in question was addressed to an Officer who was on leave at the time and the post was not opened in her absence. However, the letter was acknowledged last week and a review of the person’s entitlements is currently ongoing. The person in question will be notified of the outcome as soon as a decision has been made.
