Dear Bedfordshire Police,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Bedfordshire Police's handling of my FOI request 'Bedfordshire Police 2022 Police Vehicle Fleet List'.

[ GIVE DETAILS ABOUT YOUR COMPLAINT HERE ]
You said that you couldn't release any registration number plate due to Section 31(1)(a)(b) - Law Enforcement, Section 31 is a qualified prejudice-based exemption and is subject to a public interest test. However, before making this inquiry, I found that you did release information related to police vehicle's registration plate to similar fleet requests like Adrian Jenkins 1048/2016. I found it unfair and ridiculous that you were able to give those people details about your police vehicle's registration plate, yet you refuse to give me any information about the registration plates. I don't understand why you would realses information that "prejudice-based exemption " for people like Adrian. If he gets the information for police vehicle's registration plate, then I should receive the information about police vehicle's registration plate, too. I want you to take a look at this internal review and give me the information that includes the police vehicle's registration plate.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/b...
