Dear Ms Montagu,

 

Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FoIA)

 

Thank you for your email. The above legislation provides a right of access
to recorded information; but your request is currently too broad. The
Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has published guidance for
requestors on its website which says:

 

If your request does lack any serious or clear purpose or if it is not
focused on acquiring information, then the FOIA and EIR are probably not
an appropriate means through which to pursue your concern. You might do
better to explore whether there are other more suitable channels through
which to take up the issue with the authority. You should also bear in
mind that the FOIA includes a safeguard against requests which exceed the
cost limits for compliance (Section 12). The equivalent provision in the
EIR is once again [Regulation 12(4)(b)] - manifestly unreasonable requests
.

 

Therefore, if you are planning to ask for a large volume of information,
or make a very general request, you should first consider whether you
could narrow or refocus the scope of the request, as this may help you get
what you really want and reduce any unnecessary burden or costs on the
authority.

 

The ICO also provides guidance for requestors on the Dos and Don’ts of
making an effective request
[1]https://ico.org.uk/your-data-matters/off... As part of
that list it states that a requestor should not:

Deliberately ‘fish’ for information by submitting a very broad or random
requests in the hope it will catch something noteworthy or otherwise
useful. Requests should be directed towards obtaining information on a
particular issue, rather than relying on pot luck to see if anything of
interest is revealed.

 

Therefore, until you are able to provide us with specific details and a
specific timeframe of what recorded information you are seeking in respect
of Youth Council we will not be able to process your request.

 

Yours sincerely
