Dear Louis Goddard
 
Re: Freedom of Information – Information Request
 
We refer to your email dated 19 October 2018 which we have dealt with
under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FoIA).
 
You have asked for information about legal disputes the RPA has had with
other government departments, councils and mayoral departments.
 
RPA can confirm that it does not hold any information in relation to your
request as any legal dispute is entered into with farming enterprises and
individuals.
 
If you are not happy with the way we have handled your request, you can
ask for an internal review. These requests should be submitted in writing
within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your original
request and should be addressed to the Information Rights Team at the
Rural Payments Agency, North Gate House, 21-23 Valpy Street, Reading, RG1
1AF or alternatively email your request for a review to [1][email address]
 
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. Please note that generally the Information Commissioner cannot
make a decision unless you have first exhausted RPA’s own complaints
procedure. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
[2]Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane,
Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
 
If you have any queries about this let us know.
 
Yours sincerely
