some ILF users have had letters asking for permission for their details to be passed onto their local authorities. This seems to be some group 2 users as well as group 1 users although who has had these letters seems rather random.

This is a draft reply that has been sent in response to the request which you might also want to use.

This is I suspect more relevant to those of us who are Group 1 users i.e. those with ILF packages that have no LA contribution.
I replied, today. My response is below and that is the line I am taking.
Thank you for your letter of 1st May 2013 requesting my consent for my details to be shared with my local authority. As you see from the attached form, I have declined this request for now. 

As you know, a judicial review of the legality of the consultation about the future of the ILF was held in March. Whilst the judge ruled that the consultation had not been unlawful, an appeal is being prepared and is likely to be heard. Hence, I do not feel it would be appropriate to accelerate the transfer process to local authorities until the future of the ILF has been decided in the courts. 

Furthermore, in the event the ILF does close and myself and other clients need to seek funding from a Local Authority, I’m really quite capable of approaching them myself and sharing my details with them at a time and situation that I judge to be appropriate. To this end, I may ask for my details to be passed on to my Local Authority at a later date but not now.
