Dear West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service,

I refer to the letter addressed to myself dated 31st July 2013 from Mrs PE Braisher, HR Team leader, Your ref PRF2535/peb
In it she makes the comment,
"I write with regard to your pension review to inform you of the Authority's decision now the process has been concluded. Due to the fact that you have refused to give consent to release your most recent GP records to the IQMP, the Authority has made its decision under rule H1(3). This rule allows the Authority to make its decision using medical evidence other than that of the IQMP, or Indeed, without any medical evidence. The Authority is of the view that your mental health condition has improved since your ill health retirement."

I conclude that the decision mentioned above was taken at a properly convened meeting of the Fire Authority, or one of its sub groups.
I therefore request,

1/Details of all the meetings where this matter has been discussed, including copies of the agenda and minutes, including dates and time of the meetings.
2/Details of medical qualifications held by the persons who made the decision.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew J Killingbeck
