Abolition of the FLA and 'Safe Standing' areas

The request was partially successful.

Dear Sirs,

1. Can you please provide me with all data (including emails) that you hold regarding the transfer of your responsibilities since it was announced that the FLA is to be abolished.

2. I would also be grateful for a copy of all data you hold that has been produced in the last year regarding the issue of the reintroduction of ‘safe standing’ areas in English football stadiums.

If you deem that it will take your authority excessive time to locate, retrieve and communicate this information to me please let me know and we can discuss how my request can be moderated in order to bring it within the ‘appropriate limit’ specified in section 12 of the Act. Similarly, if any copying costs are involved please let me know so that I may reimburse you for any reasonable expenditure, though I would prefer all the data to be supplied by electronically. I should also make you aware that I am not part of any formal lobbying group, so you should not aggregate my request with others of a similar nature.

Should you decide to withhold any element of the data I am requesting then you will, of course, be aware that under section 17 of the Act you will need to provide a valid exemption, and that if this exemption is a qualified one then the balance of public interest will need to be entered into to a level that will satisfy not only your own internal review procedures, but also the Office of the Information Commissioner and the Information Tribunal service.

I would also like to ask your permission to reuse any information you send me in line with the Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2005, and to be given a copy of your procedures for requesting an internal review of your decisions.

I am aware that the Act allows you up to 20 working days to respond, but I would be most grateful if you would enter into the spirit of the Act and that you respond “promptly” as specified in section 10(1).

Lastly, could you please supply me with an early acknowledgement of my request and a reference number for any future correspondence.

Thank you for your time in this matter.

Yours faithfully,

John Evans

Dear Sir

Thank you for your freedom of information request asking:

1. Can you please provide me with all data (including emails) that

you hold regarding the transfer of your responsibilities since it

was announced that the FLA is to be abolished.

The FLA does not hold any data on file other than the official
announcement from DCMS which has been published on our website.

[1]www.flaweb.org.uk

2. I would also be grateful for a copy of all data you hold that

has been produced in the last year regarding the issue of the

reintroduction of `safe standing' areas in English football

stadiums.

The only information we are holding on the issue of reintroduction of
standing areas is a reply we gave to a member of the public in response to
an inquiry about introducing a standing area. A copy of that reply is
attached.

Well, no refusal of information, but I do wonder how well they searched their records...

Pete Burrett left an annotation ()

"Do not hold any information on file"? Might technically be true, but must mean all correspondence has been deleted. How can no information have been generated? And if it has all been deleted, why?

John Evans left an annotation ()

Why get involved in a long running argument when they are about to be abolished? If they did really take an interest in how Stadiums/Grounds are run then they may have taken my request more seriously, so I’m going to be nice to Them and ask for an Internal Review of their response and give the FLA a second chance to be more truthful...

Really sorry, but I don't believe you only hold that much data, so I'd like an Internal Review please.

Harry Raffal left an annotation ()

Might they have said they hold no info because the second part of your request asks for data produced this year on safe standing? It be worth submitting a new request asking for all the documents they hold which discuss the possibility or the merits of reintroducing some form of standing.
Either way i hope you get the information, good luck.

Dear Nikki Rutherford,

Please could you acknowledge my request for an internal review and provide an estimate of how long this review will take.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

John Evans

Nikki Rutherford, Football Licensing Authority

I acknowledge your request for an internal review. We would aim to complete the internal review within 20 working days. However up to 40 days are allowed for complicated cases and I will inform you if this is the case.

You have asked for an internal review to be undertaken into whether the reply you received from Mrs Rutherford in response to your request for information under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act included all the documentation the Football Licensing Authority is holding in respect of the topics covered by that request.

In your original email of 21 October 2010 you asked:

1. Can you please provide me with all data (including emails) that you hold regarding the transfer of your responsibilities since it was announced that the FLA is to be abolished.

2. I would also be grateful for a copy of all data you hold that has been produced in the last year regarding the issue of the reintroduction of ‘safe standing’ areas in English football stadiums.

The Government announced on 14 October its intention to abolish the FLA and to transfer its expertise and functions to another body. As part of that same announcement the Government stated it would support the Sports Grounds Safety Authority Bill 2010-11, a private members’ bill, presented on 30 June 2010 by Jonathan Lord MP. This would rename the Football Licensing Authority the Sports Grounds Safety Authority and allow it to provide advice, on request, about safety at sports grounds to any national or international organisation, person or body (including local authorities and Ministers of the Crown) and to charge for these services in certain circumstances. That Bill subsequently secured its second reading and has now moved to committee stage in the House of Commons.

In the 7 days from the Government announcement on the future of the FLA to the date of your request for information on any data (which we have taken to include any correspondence, emails, reports, internal discussion papers or minutes of meetings) regarding the transfer of the FLA’s responsibilities I can confirm that the only document directly related to the request was the copy of the official announcement from DCMS which, as Mrs Rutherford explained in her reply to you, was available on the FLA’s website. There is one other paper which may be considered to be indirectly related to your request for information and this is a letter from the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport to our Chairman dated 20 October which set out the outcome of the Government’s spending review and giving details of FLA’s funding settlement for the financial years 2011/12 to 2014/15. A copy of that letter has been available on our website since 25 October 2010.

The second part of your request was in respect of data regarding the reintroduction of safe standing areas in English football stadia. We considered this to be a request for copies of any correspondence, emails, reports, internal discussion papers or minutes of meetings concerning any change to the Government’s policy to require all grounds in the Premiership and Championship to be all seated and to instead allow the reintroduction of some standing accommodation. Having reviewed the papers the FLA are holding for the period 22 October 2009 to 21 October 2010 I can confirm that the only document which falls within the scope of your request was an email from the FLA to a supporter who had asked about the reintroduction of a standing area at an all seated ground. Mrs Rutherford provided a verbatim copy of that email in her reply to you dated 26 October 2010.

I am therefore satisfied that the full extent of the information we are holding in respect of your enquires is either freely available on the home page of our web site or has been previously copied to you by Mrs Rutherford.

Regards

Keith Sears
Senior Executive
Football Licensing Authority

Sorry, but I still don’t believe you. When the news broke about your quango being abolished then somewhere in your organisation someone must have sent an email along the lines of “have you just seen what WTF the Government have done to us?”.

It’s up to you what you do next, but my only formal option in this legal argument is to go to the ICO (which takes ages) but to be honest I’d rather you just came clean now rather than later.

I'll give you another twenty working days to think about it, so no rush...

Regards,

John

Keith Sears, Football Licensing Authority

I am sorry that you have difficulty in accepting that you have been supplied with all the information we are holding in respect with your freedom of information enquiry but it would be pointless in me waiting 20 days only to confirm that I have nothing to add to my earlier reply.

Regards

Keith Sears

Harry Raffal left an annotation ()

I'm sure you've noticed but they say in the internal review 'the only document directly relating to your request', your request(part one) was about the transfer of responsibilities not the internal response of any individuals within the FLA regarding the decision. No doubt they hold the information your seeking but are using the vagaries of the English language to shield themselves.

Nor would it be surprising given the time frame the FLA is being wrapped up in that they wouldn't hold data regarding the transfer of responsibilities between the decision being announced and your request a period of seven days.
No doubt they do hold documents regarding the transfer of their responsibilities before the announcement was made and the current date but they are again exploiting the format of your request to avoid providing you with these documents.

Good luck

Dear Mr Evans

As part of your Freedom of Information enquiry dated 21 October 2010 you
asked for a copy of all data the FLA held that had been produced in the
last year regarding the issue of the reintroduction of `safe standing'
areas in English football stadiums.

At that time we advised that the only information we were holding was a
reply we gave to a member of the public in response to an inquiry about
introducing a standing area. A copy of that reply was supplied to you.

Following a subsequent internal review, undertaken at your request, you
were again advised that the document you had been sent was the only
relevant document we were holding. However, we have since identified a
piece of correspondence from a third party which had not been registered
on our filing system at the time of your request but which appears to be
within the scope of your enquiry . We are currently in the process of
advising the third party that their letter falls within the scope of an
FOI request and considering the extent of any release of that document

I must apologise for the fact that the existence of this correspondence
was not identified at an earlier stage. I will write to you again as
promptly as possible and, at the latest within 20 working days.

Dear Mr Evans

Further to my letter of 21 December 2010, I attach one piece of
correspondence with an attachment which falls within the scope of your
request of:

I would also be grateful for a copy of all data you hold that has been
produced in the last year regarding the issue of the reintroduction of
`safe standing' areas in English football stadiums.

The item is:

. a letter from the Minister of Sport to the FLA dated 11 October
2010 with an attached letter from Don Foster MP to the Minister of Sport
dated 17 September 2010.

As stated in my previous letter this item was overlooked as it had not
been registered on our filing system at the time of your request nor at
the time of the internal review. Please accept my apology for this
oversight.

Dear Ms Rutherford,

Many thanks for that. Dead interesting.

However, I still don't go with the fact that no one in your organisation made any electronic comment at all given that it was announced that you'd all soon be made redundant. Happy if you want to present a valid exemption but please can you search your email system as well as your filing system one more time before I go to the ICO. It's really not difficult these days to scan a corporate email system, is it?

Yours sincerely,

John Evans

Also, I note that the Minister for Sport wrote to the FLA on 11th October 2010 asking for your organisation's views on safe standing. Can you tell me if you replied, and if so provide me with a copy of that reply (or a valid exemption notice).

Yours sincerely,

John Evans

I have undertaken a thorough search of the system and contacted each member of staff and can confirm that we do not hold any electronic comment on the abolishment of the FLA within the scope of your request. However for your information I attach a copy of an e-mail sent out prior to the official announcement:

• An e-mail from the Chief Executive to the Inspectors dated 14 October.

It may help you to understand why there is no further electronic comment if I explain that the FLA is a small organisation with HQ staff all in one office. It is therefore more likely for the staff to speak to one another rather than use e-mail.

Dear Nikki,

Thank you for your latest response.

By the FLA’s own admission you proposed calling a meeting on the 19th of October, in which an “agenda” was tabled that included the abolition of your organisation. Presumably there are minutes (either in draft form at the time of my request, which still captured under the Act) or final minutes. Please could you not only provide me with a copy of these documents (or a valid exemption notice) and also tell me why your organisation suddenly keeps finding documents that should have been provided (or officially refused) in my initial request dated 21st October 2011?

To be frank, I do not agree with your decision of 2nd February to refuse data as this document is the definitive and key response of the FLA to the burning question of whether you think any standing should be allowed in the top two divisions, yet you deem that the public are not entitled to know your views! I suggest you re-examine the balance of public interest test regarding S36 because it is weak to say the least. And to withhold it all? Could you not redact the document to take out genuinely exempt data?

I am also still awaiting an answer as whether your complaints procedure has been exhausted so that I may progress this matter to both the ICO (slow) and bring the matter to the attention of my local MP here in Witney (as fast as I can get a constituency slot with him).

Subject: Abolition of the FLA and safe stsanding areas

Dear Mr Evans

Thank you for your e-mail of 3 February which we are responding to under
the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

In your e-mail you asked:

Tell me why your organisation suddenly keeps finding documents that should
have been provided (or officially refused) in my initial request dated
21st October 2011?

As you know a letter from the Minister of Sport dated 11 October, with an
attached letter from Don Foster, was overlooked at the time of the
original request. As soon as this was discovered we contacted you to
advise you of and apologise for our error and have supplied a copy of that
letter.

The e-mail from the Chief Executive to the Inspectors dated 14 October was
identified at the time of your initial request of 21 October 2010, but was
treated as falling out of the scope of the request. Your request was:

Can you please provide me with all data (including emails) that you hold
regarding the transfer of your responsibilities since it was announced
that the FLA is to be abolished

The e-mail was issued before the announcement was made, and was therefore
outside the scope of the request. In providing the e-mail in response to
your most recent request we tried to go above and beyond what had been
requested in an effort to be helpful. In response you asked whether
there were notes of the meeting to which the e-mail refers.

By the FLA's own admission you proposed calling a meeting on the 19th of
October, in which an "agenda" was tabled, that included the abolition of
your organisation. Presumably there are minutes (either in draft form at
the time of my request, which still captured under the Act) or final
minutes.

As you suggest the minutes of the meeting held on 19^th October had not
been written at the time of your original request, and it is likely that
this is the reason they were not provided in response to your original
request. Having taken Section36 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000
into account it is consider on balance the document should be released and
I have therefore attached a copy of the relevant extract from the
minutes..

To be frank, I do not agree with your decision of 2nd February to refuse
data as this document is the definitive and key response of the FLA to
the burning question of whether you think any standing should be allowed
in the top two divisions, yet you deem that the public are not entitled to
know your views! I suggest you re-examine the balance of public interest
test regarding S36 because it is weak to say the least. And to withhold it
all? Could you not redact the document to take out genuinely exempt data?

I am also still awaiting an answer as whether your complaints procedure
has been exhausted so that I may progress this matter to both the ICO
(slow) and bring the matter to the attention of my local MP here in Witney
(as fast as I can get a constituency slot with him).

You are entitled under our FOI procedure to request an internal review if
you are not happy with the handling of your request.

I would be grateful if you could confirm if you would like us to undertake
such an internal review of both the handling of your request and the
decision to withhold data under section 36 of the Act.

We will aim to complete any internal review within 20 working days.
However up to 40 days are allowed for complicated cases and I will inform
you if this is the case.

Nikki Rutherford

Dear Football Licensing Authority,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Football Licensing Authority's handling of my FOI request 'Abolition of the FLA and 'Safe Standing' areas'.

In particular I would ask you to re-examine the balance of public interest in refusing to make this document public.

I am also concerned that as the decision to withhold has been made by your own Chief Executive how you can find someone in your organisation more senior than him to overrule his verdict.

Yours faithfully,

John Evans

Nikki Rutherford, Football Licensing Authority

Dear FLA,

Thank you for your response dated 31st March, to which I make the following comments.

The letter is dated 22nd March but was not released until 9 days later, suggesting either a further element of inefficiency in your organisation or a deliberate attempt to incur further delay.

It is standard practice that an internal review goes into greater depth than the original decision, especially when considering the balance of public interest. However, this letter effectively merely parrots the original response and for that reason I will be taking the case further to the Office of the Information Commissioner.

However, before I do so I wish to make a FOLLOW-UP REQUEST.

1. How many internal reviews has Mr. Darling conducted?

2. What training has he received in regard to the Freedom of Information Act?

3. How many hours of his time is logged to my request?

4. How much did he charge, or (given the above) what is his hourly rate?

5. Copies of all data held regarding the “additional training” you have given to your staff as a consequence of mishandling my request.

Yours sincerely,

John Evans

Mr Darling has conducted 1 internal review

What training has he received in regard to the Freedom of Information Act?

Before carrying out the internal review Mr Darling familiarised himself
with the relevant legislation and the process for internal review.

Mr Darling did not log his time in relation to this request but estimates
it took approximately 2 hours to review the papers.

How much did he charge, or (given the above) what is his hourly rate?

Mr Darling did not charge for carrying out the internal review.

FLA board members are remunerated and details of remuneration are
available in the FLA Annual Report, which is on our website:

Dear Nikky,

Thank you for your response – it is appreciated.

However, I did ask for copies of all data held regarding the "additional training" you have given to your staff. Could you therefore complete this request by either providing me with a copy of the presentation given by Cathy Reynolds from DCMS on Freedom of Information or provide a valid exemption if you wish to withhold it. I assume that Cathy did not give this presentation off the top of her head, that she provided your staff with some written material, and that your staff did take at least rudimentary notes for future reference (which as you will be aware now that you have been trained are captured under the scope of the Act).

The presentation given by Cathy Reynolds was a powerpoint presentation. At
the time of your request I checked to see whether a copy was held by the
FLA electronically or in paper form. I found no copies of the presentation
on our electronic records or at Headquarters and so I then phoned each of
our Inspectors to ask whether they held copies of the presentation or
notes relating to the presentation. Each confirmed they did not.

We have contacted Cathy Reynolds at DCMS and asked for a copy of her
presentation, which I attach now.
