A fiduciary duty is a legal or ethical relationship of confidence
or trust between two or more parties , most commonly a fiduciary or
trustee and a principal or beneficiary.
In a fiduciary relation one person justifiably reposes confidence,
good faith , reliance and trust in another whose aid, advice or
protection is sought in some matter. In such a relation good
conscience requires one to act at all times for the sole benefit
and interests of another, with loyalty to those interests.
This is NOT happening in HMCS and a clear conflict of interest
prevail between ‘professionals’ within local authorities and the
families comprising of men/women/offspring(children)they claim to
re-pre-sent to the state.
What information does your department hold about your fiduciary
duty and is this to the people. i.e. real men/women/their
offspring(children) or to the Crown i.e. City of London.
Dear Mr Sterling,
Thank you for your email dated 28 October sent to the Cabinet Office and
the Office of the Leader of the House of Commons regarding Fiduciary
duty. Please note for the purposes of the Freedom of Information Act,
the Office of the Leader of the House of Commons is part of the Cabinet
Looking at your request as it stands, the Cabinet Office is unlikely to
hold any information but you may wish to clarify your request to focus
on information which we may hold. I have attached below a link to the
Cabinet Office Website to give you a better understanding of the
functions of the Cabinet Office;
If by HMCS you mean HM Courts Service it is possible that the Ministry
of Justice holds information relevant to your request. If you have not
already done so, you may wish to submit your request to the Ministry of
Justice using the following link;
I hope this is helpful, and propose to take no further action unless I
hear back from you.

Are you stating that you do not have a fiduciary duty?

Dear Mr Sterling,
Thank you for your email below. I apologise for the delay in getting back to you.
Your email of 28 October asked whether the Cabinet Office holds any information on our fiduciary duty. We replied asking you to clarify and focus your request because we need further information in order to identify and locate the information you have asked for. You are now asking if we have a fiduciary duty. This is not a valid Freedom of Information request. A 'valid' request under the FOI Act is one that asks to see recorded information held by the public authority, such as information on a specific issue, or process, not one that asks for opinion or seeks answers or calculations, etc.
We would of course be happy to consider your request if you could identify more clearly the information you are seeking. The request, as it stands, only identifies a category of information (fiduciary duty). This is not sufficiently specific to allow the Cabinet Office to identify and locate the information. In case you would like to look at the Cabinet Office website again to help refine your request the address is;
Additionally, you will wish to know that where requestors make broad requests for information which is not sufficiently described, it may not be possible to process the request if the estimated cost of complying exceeds an appropriate limit. The appropriate limit has been specified in regulations and for central Government is set at £600. This represents the estimated cost of one person spending three and a half working days in determining whether the department holds the information, and locating, retrieving and extracting the information.
I hope this is helpful, but please get back to me if you have any further queries. I will not be taking any further action on this unless I hear back from you.(Under section 1(3) of the Freedom of Information act, a public authority need not comply with a request unless any further information reasonably required to locate the information is supplied.
