Dear Walsall Safeguarding Children Board,

I am writing to respectfully make a request in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000. My request is as follows:-

1) Please, can you provide a list of all employee roles who are employed by your authority and are subject to the provisions as set out in the Official Secrets Acts 1911-1989?

This can be provided in any format, however, a spreadsheet detailing each role and a mark as to whether the role requires the role holder to sign a declaration as to their recognition of being bound thus required to comply with the Act(s).

2) Please provide a disclosure of the format used by your authority which requires the signature of any role holder who is subject to provisions as set out in the Official Secrets Acts 1911-1989 such as an "Official Secrets Acts & Confidentiality Declaration"

If I am able to provide any further information in order to assist your search for information in order to successfully respond to this request, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Ryan Jarvis

InformationRights, Walsall Safeguarding Children Board

Dear Mr Jarvis,

Please could you identify whether your request relates to members of the board, children services or wider council?

Regards

Fakhara

Dear Information Rights,

I can confirm that my request relates to anyone employed on or behalf of the Board.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Jarvis,

 

Freedom of Information Request RFI-0900-19

 

Further to your request for information about staff who have signed the
offical secrets act, I can tell you the following:

 

You have confirmed that your request is for information specifically
relating to staff who are employed by, or on behalf of the Walsall
Children's Safeguarding Board. 

I can confirm that whilst Walsall Council forms part of the Safeguarding
Board, this is actually a multi-agency organisation  made up of
representatives from Children’s (social care) services, health and
hospitals, education, police, probation, youth justice service, positive
activities, domestic violence forum and many others.

As such, Walsall Council would not hold the information you are seeking in
regards to those individuals who are part of this board who have signed
the Official Secret Act as this would be information held by their
employer. 

Therefore it is considered that your request is exempt from the provisions
of the Freedom of Information Act under section 1 - Information Not Held.

The Safeguarding Board may hold information on any requirements it places
upon its members to sign such agreements. 

The ICO have previously made a number of Decision Notices that have
recognized that the Safeguarding Boards are separate and distinct bodies
from Local Authorities - so I would advise that they are contacted
directly via [email address].

 

Most of the information that we provide in response to Freedom of
Information Act 2000 requests will be subject to copyright protection.  In
most cases the copyright will be owned by Walsall Council. The copyright
in respect of other information may be owned by another person or
organisation, as indicated.

 

You are free to use any information supplied to you in response to this
request for your own non-commercial research or private study purposes.
The information may also be used for any other purpose allowed by a
limitation or exception in copyright law, such as news reporting.
 However, any other type of re-use, for example by publishing the
information in analogue or digital form, including on the internet, will
require the permission of the copyright owner.

I hope that the information provided is useful to you. However, if you are
dissatisfied, you should set out in writing your grounds for complaint and
send to: Corporate Assurance Manager, Resources & Transformation, Civic
Centre, Darwall Street, Walsall, WS1 1TP.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of your complaint, you may apply
directly to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) for a decision.
Please remember that, generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless you
have first exhausted the complaints procedure provided by the council. The
Information Commissioner can be contacted at: The Information
Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9
5AF. [1]https://ico.org.uk/global/contact-us/

 

Yours sincerely,

James Sparrock
