1 Atodiad

Dear Sir/Madam,

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST X04-316

 

We refer to your email dated 14 June 2018 which contained a request for
information as set out in italics below. Following consideration of your
request, in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I respond
to each point as follows:

 

I write to you to request you provide a diagram of the management
structure for both adults and Childrens social services for Bridgend
County Council, including the full name of the service managers and line
managers, their job title and their E-mail address/contact details.

 

Please find attached structure chart which shows the structure in Adult
and Childrens Social Services.   Whilst we can confirm that we hold the
names and contact details for managers in each of the services, we
consider that this information is exempt under section 40(2) of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 which states:

 

(2) Any information to which a request for information relates is also
exempt information if—

(a)it constitutes personal data which does not fall within subsection (1),
and

(b) the first, second or third condition below is satisfied.

(3A)The first condition is that the disclosure of the information to a
member of the public otherwise than under this Act—

(a)would contravene any of the data protection principles,

 

Disclosure of the names and contact details of managers would breach the
first data protection principle as set out in Article 5 of the General
Data Protection Regulation which states:

 

1.    Personal data shall be

 

a.          Processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in
relation to the data subject (‘lawfulness, fairness and transparency^2);

 

Article 4 of the General Data Protection Regulation states that:-

 

For the purposes of this Regulation: (1) ‘personal data’ means any
information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person
(‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be
identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an
identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an
online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical,
physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of
that natural person;

 

The Information Commissioner’s guidance “Access to Information about
public authorities’ employees” and “When should names be disclosed”
provide guidance on how the Authority should treat requests for
information of this nature. The Authority considers the information
requested to be absolutely exempt from disclosure by virtue of Section
40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

The Authority does not consider that it would be fair in all the
circumstances to identify the individual as whilst the information relates
to them in their professional capacity, they would not reasonably expect
their details to be placed into the public domain. The Authority’s
procedure is not to disclose as a matter of routine information about
members of staff below Corporate Director level.

 

Under Section 40 of the Freedom of Information Act, the information
requested is subject to an absolute exemption.  This exemption applies
because the information requested would constitute a disclosure of
personal data.

 

Therefore, to the extent set out above, this letter acts as a Refusal
Notice in accordance with Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act
2000 as we have not provided the information requested.

 

We are however able to advise you that the Corporate Director – Social
Services has management responsibility for services named in the structure
chart. 

 

Contact details for the Corporate Director – Communities are as follows:-

 

Susan Cooper

E-mail address – [email address]

Tel 01656 642251

 

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of the request, under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 you have the right to request a review of
the Council’s response to your request for information. If you wish to
request a review, please write to:

 

Monitoring Officer

Bridgend County Borough Council

Civic Offices,

Angel Street

Bridgend, CF31 4WB

 

within 28 days of the date of this letter. If you remain dissatisfied with
the outcome of that review, you may seek further recourse by lodging an
appeal with the Information Commissioner at:

 

Information Commissioner’s Office – Wales
