Dear Libby

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION (SCOTLAND) ACT 2002

 

In response to your enquiry of 25 July, under Section 17(1)(b) of the Act,
I regret to inform you that East Lothian Council (ELC) has been unable to
comply with your request as the information you require is not held. 

 

ELC does not specifically record this information and unfortunately it is
not something that can be retrieved from our systems.  We do not have
separate ledger codes for permanent and supply/temporary staff, the only
distinction is between teaching and non-teaching staff. 

 

I understand that supply teachers are paid in a separate pay run so it may
be possible to provide these costs.  However, temporary teachers are paid
in the same pay run as the permanent teachers so there is no distinction
between the two. The non-teaching supply / temp staff are also paid along
with permanent staff so again we are unable to separate the costs.  I can
confirm, however, that ELC does not use Agency staff in its schools.

 

I am sorry that we have been unable to assist you on this occasion but
confirm that, if you wish to redefine any part of your request, we will be
happy to address it as a new enquiry.  In the meantime, 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.  If, for
example, you are unhappy because you do not believe the information you
have received is accurate, an internal review would not apply.  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
by:

 

·                     refusing to give you the information

·                     failing to reply to you within the time limit
allowed

·                     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
unreasonable

 

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 for it to be reviewed.  Your reasons of dissatisfaction must
relate to your information request of 25 July only and should be addressed
to:

 

Data Protection and Freedom of Information Compliance Officer

Law & Licensing

East Lothian Council

John Muir House

Haddington

EH41 3HA

 

Email: [1][East Lothian Council request email]

 

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 Scottish Information Commissioner to
investigate the matter.  You may contact the Commissioner at:

 

Scottish Information Commissioner

Kinburn Castle

Doubledykes Road

St Andrews

Telephone:  01334 464610

Fax:  01334 464611

E-mail:  [2][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
