Dear Sir/Madam

Request for Information

 

I refer again to your email of 8 June 2021 seeking information in relation
to LGBT Youth Scotland and the LGBT Charter Programme.

 

Having investigated, my response to your six enquiries is as follows:-

 

(1)          North Lanarkshire Council is signed up to the LGBT Youth Scotland
Charter at Foundation Level.  Further information is publically available on the
Council’s website and as you may know Section 25 of the Freedom of Information
(Scotland) Act 2002 provides an absolute exemption for information that is
already accessible.  For ease of reference the link to this information is as
follows:-

(5)        I regret to advise you that there is no central dataset that
records the information sought and in terms of Section 17 of the Freedom
of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, I must advise that the information
sought is not held.

 

(6)          The total amount paid by North Lanarkshire Council over the last
three years is £5,849.60.

 

I can advise that North Lanarkshire Council, having regard to the
provisions of Section 21 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act
2002, has established a procedure whereby any person who has requested
information and is in any way dissatisfied with the decision on that
request, can within forty working days require a review of that decision
by writing to the Head of Legal and Democratic Solutions, Civic Centre,
Windmillhill Street, Motherwell ML1 1AB.  Accordingly, if you are
dissatisfied with this decision and seek such review please write to the
Head of Legal and Democratic Solutions.

 

I would advise, also, that in terms of Section 47 of the Act a person who
is dissatisfied with a notice given by the local authority under Section
21 of the Act - ie. a notice following a review of a decision by a local
authority, or by the failure of a local authority to give such a notice -
may make application to the Scottish Information Commissioner for a
decision as to whether, in any respect specified in that application, the
request for information to which the requirement relates has been dealt
with in accordance with the Act.  Such an application must be made within
six months of the review decision and be in writing or in another form
which, by reason of it having some permanency is capable of being used for
subsequent reference. The application must state the name of the
applicant, and provide an address for correspondence. The application must
also specify the request for information to which the requirement for
review relates, the matter which gave rise to the applicant’s
dissatisfaction with the original decision of the local authority and the
matter which gives rise to the applicant’s dissatisfaction with the
decision on review by the local authority or the failure of the local
authority to issue such a decision.  The Scottish Information Commissioner
can be contacted as follows:-

 

Scottish Information Commissioner

Kinburn Castle

Doubledykes Road

St. Andrews

KY16  9DS

email: [2][email address]

 

Appeals to the Scottish Information Commissioner can also be made online
via the following link: -

I hope this information is sufficient for your purpose.  If, however, you
require further information – or I can assist in any other way – please
let me know.

 

Yours faithfully
