Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear UK Border Agency,

A Powerpoint presentation from Jan 2013 has came into my posession. I have uploaded said presentation to the internet at this address for easy access for yourself (I have not published this on any website except for this FOI request, and it will be removed if requested by yourselves... - I would however appriciate a URL to the original document on your own website should you host it for public access)
http://ourphotograph.webatu.com/PrivateD...

The document makes reference to "Handouts" and "Notes". I would request, under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act to receive a copy of the handouts and notes refered to in the powerpoint presentation.

In addition to this: ECG – European Nationals and Schemes (EUN) is mentioned as a source of information. What is this, and please provide a link to the relevant information, or a copy of such information.

In addition to this, please provide all REASONABLE information that UKBA holds on VAN DER ELST CASEs for EEA migration - (note the word reasonable, I would accept a detailed explaination of the case, UKBA interpretation of the ruling, and who actually qualifies...)

Yours faithfully,

Wayne Pearsall

Dear UK Border Agency,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of UK Border Agency's handling of my FOI request 'Presentation RE EEA Regulations - Handouts'.

I originally highlighted the PPT file which contains: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/1...

(However, after it appears that somebody from the Home Office contacted my hosting provider [Located in the USA who have a "Fair Use" policy in relation to Copyrighted materials] in regards to me hosting "Copyrighted Materials" I am aware that your team is more than aware of the content of my FOI Request.)

I highlight that it has been over 40 days since my request was originally posted. No response has been made. I am also well aware that considering you have failed to respond to this request within a timely manner, ICO guidelines state that any subsequent requests from myself cannot be taken into account when determining "Vexatiousness" of a request
(which it appears that every request I make you decide falls into this category now?)

However, in light of the obvious breach of Sec 10 of the act, and failure to respond to myself within the absolute endstop... If I do not receive a response from the Home Office by 14th June 2013, then I will file this request as a complaint with the ICO, after obviously exhausting the Home Office internal complaints proceedure.

I also remind you that I am not the only individual that has requested a copy of this information. I am well aware that at least three other people have made a request for this information from yourselves. ( https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/e... being one of the requests )

Dear UK Border Agency,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of UK Border Agency's handling of my FOI request 'Presentation RE EEA Regulations - Handouts'.

As the ICO have written to you (Case Reference Number FS50500200) instructing you to release the requested information within 10 days, I am also, considering that your response fails to provide all of the requested information,

As slide 12 clearly states "*Handout* the laminate copies of the Latvian newspaper article on marriage of convenience and the BBC article."
It is clear that both the Latvian and BBC articles should of been supplied to myself within the response from the Home Office - as I requested a copy of *ALL HANDOUTS AND NOTES*.

On this basis, and (as you readily appear to point out) the large number of my other requests (which the Home Office breach numerous schedules of the act during the course of responding to myself) - I am CLEARLY requesting an Internal Review into the ENTIRE RESPONSE.

The Home Office have clearly only published the original material which I presented to them, and have failed to publish the information which I have requested.

There are various references to "Notes" and "Handouts" (one mentioned above) - and these "Handouts" have not been provided [ Mind, as raised with both yourselves - which you have decided to ignore - and the ICO, its not the first time information has been withheld within my requests ]

Dear UK Border Agency,

RE: 27104

FAO: R Taylor

I'm wondering if the home office have identified the correct request for review.

I note you state "your response of to the request of 8th april"
however
1) I have had no response (other than a time complaint)
2) my request was on the 7th april, as evidenced on WDTK.

13. A request which would not normally be regarded as vexatious when considered in isolation may assume that quality once considered in the context of other requests, thereby contributing to an aggregated burden. It is noted that Mr Pearsall currently has „20‟ live internal reviews logged with the department, representing 36% of the whole being handled by the Home Office. The level of Mr Pearsall‟s initial requests and internal reviews places a burden on the department and further requests from Mr Pearsall may be classified as vexatious.

(36/20) * 100 = 55.555555555555555*

Do the Home Office seriously have "half an internal review" in place?... considering that the home office provide statistical data, perhaps a more accurate account would be called for...

All the same, of 20 IR's I have in, it need not matter at all... These IR's are clearly because the home office breach the legislation...

I find it hard to believe that the home office only have 55 IR's in process... I can probally find more on the WDTK website which are still "Active"

<< SUMS IT UP DOESNT IT

Dear FOI Requests,

Ref: 27104

Richard, thanks for providing the further information. I appreciate your appology for the "oversight" - However, the FOIA means that the information must be searched for... How could the proceedures that you have in place allow for such oversights?

I could understand if it was indeed just one document out of nine... but to miss seven documents out of nine... You felt the need to mention statistics etc.. So thats in excess of 75% of the documentation you hold being withheld from myself...

In addition to this, can you confirm... As the document states that this was "Day 12". Do the previous days not fall within scope of my request...

If you are able to confirm this, then I am happy to state that Ref: 27104 is considered resolved.

But I do highlight that this is not the only request that you (not personally yourself, but the team) have failed to provide a full acurate release of...

I note a previous request for information RE derivative right of residence... the information provided on this request RE: Chen surely fell within the scope of that request?

Next: as for 20 ongoing IR's... I note most of them have actually exceeded the ICO guidelines of 40 working days...
