Suppressing freedom of expression

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Norfolk Constabulary,

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/ho...

This story records Norfolk police 'said it wanted to speak to the individual to give “words of advice” about how wearing the costume on walks could affect others in the local area.'

Could you please provide details of the legislation under which you are free to constrain individuals' choice of clothing?

Yours faithfully,

John Davidson

During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic our practices may not meet our usual response times and it may take longer for us to respond to your requests. We will continue to work normally as far as we can, but, as the situation continues to develop, the focus of the team may need to be diverted to the most important aspects of work, which may place unavoidable strain on our resources that we cannot avoid.
Due to the current volume of work, we are unable to provide individual responses regarding updates on requests. We ask that you please bare with us during this extraordinary period and we will endeavour to provide final disclosures to you as soon as possible.

Dear Mr Davidson

Our Ref: FOI 001518/20

Please accept this email as confirmation that your request for information has been received.

We aim to provide you with a response by 2nd June 2020. During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic our practices may not meet our usual response times and it may take longer for us to respond to your FOI request. As the situation continues to develop, the focus of our team, and other departments may need to be diverted to the most critical aspects of frontline police work, which may place an unavoidable strain on our resources. I would therefore politely ask that if any request for information can be deferred, then please do so by withdrawing your FOI request. Your understanding is appreciated.

A full copy of the Freedom of Information legislation is available online via the website: https://imsva91-ctp.trendmicro.com:443/w...

Should you need to discuss this further please contact us on the details above. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in Norfolk Constabulary.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Freedom Of Information (Norfolk),

Congratulations on a far more appropriate response than that offered by Greater Manchester recently:

'Unfortunately due to the current global pandemic we are all faced with, Greater Manchester Police (GMP), at this time, is unable to guarantee that your Freedom of Information request will be prioritised by the relevant business area and that statutory time scales will be met. GMP sincerely apologises for any inconvenience this has caused you and thanks you for your support and patience at this difficult time.'

I believe the issue needs to be addressed. but I agree that it doesn't need to conform to FOI regulations on this occasion. Shall we aim for July 5th?

Yours sincerely,

John Davidson
