Dear Mr Cairns

You already received my letter dated 28 August 2016 on 29 August 2016 and my section 10 notice incorporating that letter was dated 17 December 2016.

You are well beyond the time limit for responding to that notice.

My letter dated 28 August 2016 did not relate to your report. It was focussed upon your letters to my MSPs which contained false and very damaging statements about me, most egregious of which was Scottish Enterprise's blatant lie that I had supposedly exhausted your complaints and review processes. In fact Scottish Enterprise has never provided a response to any complaint from me that could be reviewed, even after I specifically requested any such response or review in subject access disclosures.

Your persistent dishonesty in this matter is disgraceful.

I fully intend publicising that in due course.

Eddie Cairns.
