Dear T Thomas,

Freedom of Information Act 2000 - Request for Information

I am writing in respect of your recent enquiry for information held by the Authority under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act.

Please find the response to your request enclosed.

It has been identified that over the seven month period outlined in the request there are thousands of emails that would need to be searched through in order to determine information held and extract it. Under the Act (Section 12(1)) the Authority has the right to refuse to release the information where it is reasonably estimates that the cost of complying with a request would exceed £450 (calculated on the basis of 18 hours @ £25 per hour). On this occasion we have estimated that the cost of determining whether we hold the requested information and locating, retrieving and extracting it would exceeds £450. The Authority has therefore decided to refuse your request.

We may, however, be able to assist you with your request if you can narrow it down, which would reduce the search. It would be helpful if the request could be narrowed by subject or issue, this could help reduce the time period we would need to search through.

If you are unhappy with the way the authority has handled your request, you may ask for an internal review. Please contact the Council’s Senior Information Governance Officer, Wakefield Metropolitan District Council, Information Governance Team, County Hall, Wakefield WF1 2QW, who will arrange an internal review of your case.

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow SK9 5AF, http://www.ico.gov.uk/.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any further queries regarding this matter.

Yours sincerely
