Dear West Midlands Ambulance Service University NHS Foundation Trust,

Can you please provide me with the following information:

Can you please advise if your organisation issues operational staff with body armour/stab vests.

If your organisation doesn't routinely issue body armour/stab vest to all operational staff please include the justification/s & and any risk assessments for this as well as any policy around this.

Where body armour is issued to staff can you provide me with the make, model and cost of these vests. Please also included body armour issued to specialist units for specific risks such as the response to an MTA incident.

Where these items are no longer required by an individual (e.g. individual leaves employment etc) what is the trust's policy on reuse and/or disposal of these items, please also include any companies/contractors that the trust use to dispose of these items.

Yours faithfully,

Ben Jones

Dear West Midlands Ambulance Service University NHS Foundation Trust,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of West Midlands Ambulance Service University NHS Foundation Trust's handling of my FOI request 'Issue and Disposal of Equipment.'.

I do not believe the use of a Section 43 exception is correct in regards to this information. In addition West Midlands Ambulance Service University NHS Foundation Trust have not demonstrated how this would prejudice commercial interests nor have they undertaken a public interest test as is required.

While the cost of an item could be considered apart of a procurement process the information requested wouldn't constitute commercially sensitive information.

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

Yours faithfully,

Ben Jones
