Dear Sir/Madam

Re: Freedom of Information Act 2000 - Request for Information

I refer to your email dated 2 August 2011, and note your request is to the Freedom of Information Act which can be summarised as follows: Payments to Unions and staff support.

Whilst the Act confers a general right of access to information held by public authorities section 1 provides that “any person making a request for information to a public authority is entitled:

a) to be informed in writing by the public authority whether it holds information of the description specified in the request; and

b) if that is the case to have that information communicated to them”, subject to the effect of the exemptions in Part 11 of the Act.

Therefore pursuant to the Council’s duty to confirm or deny whether or not it holds the information requested I confirm that the Council holds the information contained within your request.

In response to your enquiry;

I attach a spreadsheet detailing payments to the organisations requested.

If you are dissatisfied with the Freedom of Information response set out in this email you may request a review of this decision via the Council’s complaints procedure, and details of which are enclosed.

In addition, information to any right of appeal to the Information Commissioner may be found at www.informationcommissioner.gov.uk or by writing to Information Commissioner, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF (telephone 06125 545745), email [email address] . Please note that the Information Commissioner will not usually consider an appeal until the Council’s internal review procedure has been exhausted.
