Dear Ms MacDonald





In response to your enquiry of 16 August, on behalf of East Lothian
Licensing Board I am now able to provide the information you require;
please refer to the attachment.


Under the terms of this legislation, if you are unhappy with the way your
request has been handled, you are entitled to request that we undertake an
internal review.  Please note, however, that both the Freedom of
Information (Scotland) Act 2002 and the Environmental Information
(Scotland) Regulations 2004 only relate to the release of information. 
The Scottish Information Commissioner publishes the following guidance
about internal reviews:


You can ask the authority to review its decision if it does not respond or
you are unhappy with the way it has dealt with your request, for example


·                     refusing to give you the information

·                     failing to reply to you within the time limit

·                     claiming the information is exempt

·                     failing to give you advice about, and help with,
making your request

·                     asking you to pay a fee that you feel is


For example, if you are unhappy because you do not believe the information
you have received is accurate, an internal review would not apply.  Should
this be the case, however, please let me know and I will try to resolve
this.  If I am unable to help, I will be happy to put you in touch with
someone who can.


We must receive a request to review within 40 working days of the date of
this notice.  A request to review our decision must be in writing (e-mail
is acceptable) or another permanent format.  When writing, you should
include your reasons as to why you are unhappy with our response and why
you wish it to be reviewed.  Your reasons for dissatisfaction must relate
to your information request of 16 August only and should be addressed to:


Information Governance Compliance Officer

Licensing, Administration and Democratic Services

East Lothian Council

John Muir House


EH41 3HA


Email: [1][email address]


We will have a maximum of 20 working days from the date we receive your
request in order to complete our review and give you our decision.  In
order to ensure an impartial approach, an independent senior officer will
be appointed to carry out the review.


If you are still not satisfied with our decision following the review
process, then you may ask the Office of the Scottish Information
Commissioner (OSIC) to investigate the matter.  OSIC’s application form
can be found at
Alternatively, you may contact OSIC at:


Scottish Information Commissioner

Kinburn Castle

Doubledykes Road

St Andrews


KY16 9DS


Telephone:  01334 464610

Fax:  01334 464611

E-mail:  [3][email address]


If you remain dissatisfied following the Commissioner’s decision, you may
be able to appeal to the Court of Session.   You should, however, obtain
legal advice before deciding on this course of action.  This is because an
appeal may only be made on a point of law, not because you disagree with
the Commissioner’s view of the case. 


Yours sincerely


Shelley Neville
