Dear Ms Evans

The Council neither confirms nor denies that it holds information falling within the description specified in your request. The duty in Section 1(1)(a) of the Freedom of Information Act does not apply, by virtue of Section 40 (2) of that Act. This is an absolute exemption and there is therefore no requirement to consider the public interest.
Please consider this correspondence as a refusal notice under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act.
The information requested, if it were held, would constitute ‘personal data’ of third parties and would therefore be subject to consideration being given to the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation.
If you are dissatisfied with this response, please let us know so that we can address any concerns. You may also complain to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office. Information on how to do this is available at http://ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint.

Regards

Mandy Evans
Clerc y Dref a Swyddog Cyllid/Town Clerk & Responsible Finance Officer

Dear Ms Evans,

Are you not even able to confirm if there have been any complaints and how many in the past 5 years? There is no identifying information contained in that response that would constitute personal data.

Yours sincerely,

Felicity Evans

Dear Ms Evans

 

Unfortunately, I am not able to confirm either way, due to the small
number of staff that the Council employs, to confirm, if this was the
case, could expose a member of staff's confidentially and thus would be a
breach of the Data Protection Act.

 

Regards
