Dear Mr Steward,

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 (FOIA)

 

I refer to your request/s for information under the general topic heading
of ‘Asbestos and Asbestosis & General Questions’ and received into this
office on 15/10/2018.

 

Section 14(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 does not oblige a
public authority to comply with a request for information if the request
is vexatious. After careful consideration of your requests HSENI considers
them to be vexatious and we will not be responding.

 

I would refer you to the ICO guidance (copied below for ease of reference)
with regard to a requestor who submits numerous requests. I consider this
to clearly demonstrate the situation with yourself and hence this
vexatious condition applies. The vexatious conditions set out to you in my
email of 17/10/2018 in response to FOI/153/2018 also apply to these series
of requests.

 

58. A request which would not normally be regarded as vexatious in
isolation may assume that quality once considered in context. An example
of this would be where an individual is placing a significant strain on an
authority’s resources by submitting a long and frequent series of
requests, and the most recent request, although not obviously vexatious in
itself, is contributing to that aggregated burden.

 

59. The requester’s past pattern of behaviour may also be a relevant
consideration. For instance, if the authority’s experience of dealing with
his previous requests suggests that he won’t be satisfied with any
response and will submit numerous follow up enquiries no matter what
information is supplied, then this evidence could strengthen any argument
that responding to the current request will impose a disproportionate
burden on the authority.

 

If you have any queries about this email, please contact me. Please
remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.

 

I hope you find this information useful, but if you are dissatisfied with
the way in which HSENI has handled your request, please go to

the actions that are available to you.

 

 

Yours sincerely

Dear O'Neill, Liam,

yet again more evidence from HSENI for failing to disclose information which should be in the public forum this is another case for the ICO to pass judgment on a fractured non compliant Government Service provider

Yours sincerely,
