Dear Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council,

We are led to believe that you have previously received FOI requests from an e-mail address using the name [name removed] [name removed]. Further, that you were aware that the name in the e-mail address was not the name of the person sending the e-mail. Yet, we are advised that you responded to such FOI requests.

You have discretion in responding to requests in such circumstances. We contend that you should treat each request on the same basis and that your approach to such requests should be set out in your publications policy.

You will be aware that there is a discretion. This is important as there are circumstances where disclosure of the identity of the person making the request may put them at risk. You should consider the percent that you are setting for yourselves as well as recognising that people may ask what you have to hide.

Yours faithfully,

[name removed] [name removed]
