The Official Secrets Acts 1911 - 1989
Ryan Jarvis made this Rhyddid Gwybodaeth request to Hackney and City Safeguarding Children Board as part of a batch sent to 388 authorities
This authority is not subject to FOI law, so is not legally obliged to respond (manylion).
This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.
Dear Hackney and City 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.
Dear Mr Jarvis,
Thank you for your request. The City & Hackney Safeguarding Children
Board (CHSCB) was formally disbanded on 27 September 2019 as a result of
changes to legislation brought about by the Children & Social Work Act
2017. New safeguarding arrangements have been implemented and are led by
the Local Authority, Police and Clinical Commissioning Group.
The CHSCB was neither an employing authority nor a public
authority for the purposes of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. It
was, therefore, exempt from responding to
requests for disclosure of information under
the Freedom of Information Act.
In respect of your request for details about employees who are subject to
the provisions as set out in the Official Secrets Acts 1911-1989 and the
format for disclosure, this should be directed to the
individual organisations from whom you seek such information. I have been
advised by the London Borough of Hackney that it does not hold any
information in this regard.
