Cuts to Public Services

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Councils,

I am writing to you in regards to budget cuts planned for local public services. I would like to know:

1) Which public services will be facing cuts?

2) How much money has been cut from these budgets in the last 5 years?

3) How much is planning to be cut in the future?

4) How many job losses this will entail?

Please provide the above information digitally, preferably in the form of an excel spreadsheet.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under your Section 16 obligations, as to how I can refine my request to be included in the scope of the Act.

In any case, if you can identify ways that my request could be refined please provide further advice and assistance to indicate this.

I look forward to your response within 20 working days, as stipulated by the Act.

If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to clarify what I am asking for.

Yours faithfully,

Kirsty Card

Yours faithfully,

Dear Kirsty,

 

I have been passed your request for a review given that you have
experienced a delay in receiving your information.

 

I have looked into this and established that your request was received on
20 August, and should have been dealt with by 18 September. Unfortunately
your request was not processed in that time, and indeed you requested an
internal review on 3 October when a response was sent to you by 9 October.

 

I can only apologise on behalf of the council for the delay in the
response being sent to you. I have found that the request did enter our
electronic system however was unfortunately not processed properly.  We
have recently had an upgrade of our software however I cannot see that
this has caused any problems and believe it was human error which caused
this problem.

 

Once again I apologise for the delay. Should you wish to discuss this
matter further, please do contact me.

 

Alternatively, if you are dissatisfied with this response, you can contact
the Information Commissioner at:
