Dear Hammersmith and Fulham Borough Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Hammersmith and Fulham Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Resident Involvement Meetings 2017/18,2018/19, 2019/2020, 2020/21.'.

The whole point of submitting a Freedom of Information Request is that the information requested is provided into the 'public domain'.

That the council deals with the various document formats it uses is not a matter nor a subject I have raised in satisfaction of this request and is irrelevant to it. As the requester I have asked for the documents and pdf will be fine for me. Your response was delivered in both pdf and MS. WORD formats both not a problem. Indeed the example in the your letter uses a .pdf document file contradicting the initial assertion.

The council regularly replies using MS. WORD and Excell file formats but typically pdf on this website.

The ICO is clear. https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/gui... "In what format should we give the requester the information?"

"There are a number of ways you could make information available, including by email, as a printed copy, on a disk, or by arranging for the requester to view the information. Normally, you should send the information by whatever means is most reasonable. For example, if the requester has made their request by email, and the information is an electronic document in a standard form, then it would be reasonable for you to reply by email and attach the information.

However, requesters have the right to specify their preferred means of communication, in their initial request. So you should check the original request for any preferences before sending out the information."

The response letter in the manner in which it was sent is not secure and editable. PDF has the benefit of being much more secure especially from artifice but I digress.

This fails the legal definition of "Freedom of information" as it requires me, the requestor to set up an account. Accept associated techonologies i.e. cookies/ip address etc.. Have that account approved then search for the data requested. Also as I am not a member of the Housing Representitives Forum and/or Investment Group the response implies the data requested by me would not be available within this 'standalone, private' websiite.

This puts the council at variance with the ACT.

Therefore I would appreciate full disclosure without further hinderence in a timely manner under the auspices of your Internal Review procedure.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/r...

Yours faithfully,

John O'Callaghan-Williamson

Dear Mr O'Callaghan-Williamson, 

Your request for Internal Review (IR) under the Freedom of Information Act
2000 (FOIA)– case – [Case reference number 1894637]

Thank you for your request for an internal review, received on 5 May 2021
and passed to the Information Management Team to investigate.  We’re sorry
you are dissatisfied with H&F’s attempts to handle your request under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000.

The Information Commissioner’s Office allows a time-limit of 20-40 working
days to investigate and provide a full response. We plan to complete this
task within 20 working days and therefore calculate that a full response
will be provided to you by 3 June 2021.

If we need to extend the deadline to the full 40 working days, we will
contact you to inform you of this extension.

Yours sincerely,

Busola Awani

Dear Busola Awani,

I would appreciate an update on progress please.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr O' Callaghan-Williamson,

Your request for Internal Review (IR) under the Freedom of Information Act
2000 FOIA - iCasework reference number 1894637

We write regarding your request for an internal review, received on 5 May
2021.  As it was explained in our acknowledgement of your request that the
Information Commissioner’s Office recommends a time limit of 20 to 40
working days to investigate and provide a full response.  

Unfortunately, we were not able to complete the full review within the
20-working day deadline of 3 June 2021 (i.e. today).  We are still in the
process of collating all the information relevant to your request. 
Regrettably, we need to extend this deadline to the full 40 working days
and calculate the revised deadline for completion to be 1 July 2021.    

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you. 

Regards

Busola Awani
