Dear Mr Steig,

 

Freedom of Information Request, our reference:  LBH/7238218

 

Thank you for your request for information dated 1 April 2018 in which you
asked for details:

 

1. The emails received from the tenant's sister to the Tenancy Management
Officer on 19 December, dated as 21 December (report pages 12-13),  16
January (report pages 14-15).

 

2. TMO email response on 4 January to tenant's sister (report page 14).

 

The following are referred to and appear in the footnotes in section 2 of
the above report:

 

3. Police IMR

 

4. HfH IMR

 

5. Note from GP

 

6. NMUH IMR

 

7. HLDP IMR

 

8. Key Support IMR

 

We have considered your request and our response is as follows.

 

1. The emails received from the tenant's sister to the Tenancy Management
Officer on 19 December, dated as 21 December (report pages 12-13),  16
January (report pages 14-15).

The SAR report, which is published at
[1]http://www.haringey.gov.uk/sites/haringe...
quotes the content of these emails. There is no further information in the
emails than is quoted in the report, other than personal information such
as names and contact details. Therefore we consider this information is
exempt from the Freedom of Information Act under Section 21 of that Act as
it is already reasonably accessible. The personal information is exempt
under section 40(2) of the Act as disclosure would be a breach of data
protection and unfair to the individual concerned.

 

2. TMO email response on 4 January to tenant's sister (report page 14).

This email is not directly quoted in the report, however a description of
what the email said is present on page 14. There is no further substantive
information contained in the email. Therefore we consider this information
is exempt from the Freedom of Information Act under Section 21 of that
Act as it is already reasonably accessible. The personal information
contained within the response is exempt under section 40(2) of the Act as
disclosure would be a breach of data protection and unfair to the
individual concerned.

 

3. Police IMR

From my enquiries, I have established that this document is not in the
possession of Homes for Haringey and therefore cannot be provided.
However, even if Homes for Haringey held the document, they are owned by
Haringey Safeguarding Adults Board (HSAB), which would have to make a
decision about the disclosure. HSAB is not a public authority for the
purposes of the Freedom of Information Act and therefore not subject to
its requirements.

 

4. HfH IMR

The SAR report is published, as set out above. This report contains in
full the internal review, recommendations and actions taken. We consider
this information is exempt from the Freedom of Information Act under
Section 21) of that Act as the information is already reasonably
accessible.

Dear Homes for Haringey,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Homes for Haringey's handling of my FOI request 'Document used in SAR report on tenant suicide 2017'.

The grounds of the internal review are as follows, in relation to each part of the request/response:

1. This is incorrect - the text in the report is only an excerpt from the original email which HfH hold. This should be disclosed.

2. You state that a description of the email is provided in the report and "There is no further substantive
information contained in the email. ". This is irrelevant - HfH holds the information as it received the email, and it should be disclosed.

3. Whether the information is owned by HSAB is irrelevant and in your response you make it clear no proper search for the information has been made. If it held by HfH then it should be disclosed - HSAB has nothing to do with this request.

5 - 8

HfH holds these documents as they were used to compile the report. The fact that they are 'owned' by HSAB is irrelevant and is not an exemption under the FOIA. The information should therefore be disclosed.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/d...

Yours faithfully,

Antony Steig
