Dear Southend on Sea Borough Council,

This Freedom of Information requests concerns 'Pepper the Robot' which you purchased for £15,199.

1. Please provide a copy of the business case for the purchase of Pepper.

2. Please provide a copy of the Outcomes Evaluation Framework, or same by another name, for Pepper (if this is not included in the business case for purchase.)

3. Please tell me the number of unique locations Pepper was deployed to for work purposes.

4. Please tell me the number of unique locations Pepper was deployed to for publicity and public relations purposes.

5. Please provide a copy of the latest completed outcomes evaluation, or same by another name, for Pepper.

6. Southend Council is on record as saying Pepper could "go up to someone of his own volition and on the back-end he could send an email back saying: ‘I spent some time with Henry. He says he’s happy, but he looks sad’, and you could gain more knowledge about the service users.” Please tell me whether your Pepper has ever recorded or reported information or observation about an individual citizen in the UK, or a group of citizens in the UK.
