Dear Mr Mortimer
I refer to your request for information as detailed below.
I can confirm that the council does not hold information falling within the description specified in your request.
I am writing to advise you that, having reviewed your request for information, we have identified that, due to the nature of the information that you are seeking, your request would be more appropriately addressed to Suffolk County Council.
Consequently, we propose to transfer your request to that organisation. However, before we transfer the request, we request your permission to notify the recipient organisation of your name and contact details.
If you agree to this, please confirm your authorisation by return of email.

Dear Ipswich Council
Request for information under the freedom of information act.
Please will you kindly tell me what the (a) gender and (b) familial relationship was to the child victim of offenders in substantiated child abuse cases in the area which you have a duty to protect children from abuse for the last full year which figures are available, broken down by (i) physical abuse, (ii) emotional abuse, (iii) sexual abuse and (iv) cases of neglect.
A change would be in the best interests of children.
