Dear Hammersmith and Fulham Borough Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Hammersmith and Fulham Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Bikeability Children's Cycle Training 2016/17'.

In response to my original FOI request, Hammersmith & Fulham Council claim to not have any of the data requested and advise that I approach the ‘training provider directly’.

This is not a satisfactory response as TfL funding for cycle training was allocated to Hammersmith & Fulham Council as such responsibility for monitoring and reporting lies with them as the budget holder.

In addition, the service provider, as a private company is not required to respond to FOI requests.

All of the information being requested should be captured by the awarded Bikeability Scheme Provider currently operating throughout Hammersmith & Fulham, data which will be routinely shared with the Council. Please complete an internal review of this FOI response and provide the requested information in a timely manner.

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

Yours faithfully,

Mr M A Jewkes

Dear Mr. Jewkes,

Thank you for your request for an internal review received by the H&F
InTouch team on 03 November 2017, and assigned to the Information
Management Team (IMT) on 06 November 2017.

We are sorry that you are dissatisfied with H&F’s handling of your request
under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA).

IMT is responsible for investigating complaints which relate to whether
H&F has complied with the FOIA. This includes investigating complaints
which are made about how H&F has processed requests for information.

The Information Commissioner’s Office allows a time limit of 20 to 40
working days to investigate and provide a full response. We plan to
complete this task within 20 working days and therefore calculate that a
full response will be provided to you by 01 December 2017.

Yours sincerely

Sarah Kelly
Senior Information Management Officer

Dear Mr. Jewkes,

We write regarding your request for an internal review, received on 03
November 2017.

As was explained in our acknowledgement of your request, the Information
Commissioner’s Office recommends a time limit of 20 to 40 working days to
investigate and provide a full response.

Unfortunately, due to an increase in statutory workload, we were unable to
complete the review within the 20 working day deadline which fell on
Friday (01 December 2017). We therefore need to extend this deadline to
the full 40 working days, and calculate the revised deadline for
completion to be 03 January 2018.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Yours sincerely

Sarah Kelly
Senior Information Management Officer
