Dear Customer,

It has come to our attention that the following requests for information
are outstanding:

 

Our Reference           What Do They Know link

MFOI-013496             [1]Council income - a Freedom of Information
request to Medway Council - WhatDoTheyKnow

MFOI-013497             [2]Staff - a Freedom of Information request to
Medway Council - WhatDoTheyKnow

The council advised in emails of 10 August 2020 that these are not valid
requests under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) 2000.

For a request to be valid, the requester must provide enough of their real
name to give anyone reading that request a reasonable indication of their
identity.

Section 8(1)(b) of the FOIA requires that a request for information must
include the real name of the requester.

If the requester;

· fails to provide a name;

· can’t be identified from the name provided (for example because they
have only used their first name or initials); or,

· is using an obvious pseudonym,

then their request won’t meet the requirements of section 8(1)(b) and will
be invalid.

Only providing a first name or surname in isolation, or a set of initials,
will not meet the requirements.

Until your full name has been provided these requests will not be
processed any further.

Yours sincerely,

 

Gayle Jones
