Dear Mr Cummings,

 

Reference: 405/2019

 

I write in connection with your request for information dated and received
in the Freedom of Information Unit at Dyfed-Powys Police on 18/04/19
regarding Section 5 of the Firearms Licensing Act data. Your request for
information has been handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and
has now been considered.

 

Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 places two duties on
public authorities. Unless exemptions apply, the first duty at Section
1(1) (a) is to confirm or deny whether the information specified in a
request is held. The second duty at Section 1(1) (b) is to disclose
information that has been confirmed as being held.

 

I can confirm that Dyfed-Powys Police does hold the information you have
requested. However we are withholding the whole of the requested
information since we consider that the Section 12 (1) exemption the Cost
of Compliance exceeds the Appropriate Limit applies to it.

 

Where exemptions are relied upon Section 17 of the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 requires Dyfed Powys Police, when refusing to provide such
information (because the information is exempt) to provide you the
applicant with a notice which:   (a) states that fact, (b) specifies the
exemption in question and (c) states (if that would not otherwise be
apparent) why the exemption applies.

 

Please see the attached response document which indicates the time
estimated by the Force it would take to complete the request as a whole
and the exemption applied concerning the non-release of the information in
its entirety.

 

In accordance therefore with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, this
letter acts as a Refusal Notice for the Whole of this request under
Section 17(5) A public authority which, in relation to any request for
information, is relying on a claim that section 12 or section 14 applies
must, within the time for complying with section 1(1), give the applicant
a notice stating that fact. You may wish to refine and resubmit your
request so that it reduces the time shown above to fall within the 18
hours, should you require any further advice in relation to this matter
please don’t hesitate to contact the Freedom of Information Unit.

 

If you are unhappy with the way your request for information has been
handled, you can request a review by writing to the Freedom of Information
Unit address supplied on the attached appeal process document.

 

If you remain dissatisfied with the handling of your request or complaint
you have a right to appeal to the Information Commissioner at:

 

The Information Commissioners Office,

Wycliffe House,

Water Lane,

Wilmslow,

Cheshire

SK9 5AF

Tel. 03031231113 or 01625 54 57 45

Website: [1]www.ico.gov.uk

 

There is no charge for making an appeal.

 

Should you wish to discuss this matter further please don’t hesitate to
contact the Freedom of Information Unit as indicated below.

 

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest
in Dyfed Powys Police.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Gareth Matthews
