Dear Westminster City Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Westminster City Council's handling of my FOI request 'Bikeability Children's Cycle Training 2016/17'.

A number of questions have not been responded to, stating Section 43 for not responding. Questions 4, 9 and 25 are enquiring as to the average number of children participating, or the average time that a session was delivered for. I would like to contest the application of Section 43 to these types of information as without any knowledge of the pricing terms for each service, the information contained within Questions 4, 9 and 25 are not commercially sensitive.

Similarly Questions 26 and 27 have also been withheld under Section 43. Again, these are asking to confirm actual deliver figures which were funded by TfL public grant funding. Knowledge of these figures would not affect the validity or competitive nature of a future procurement process, so therefor this data should not be withheld.

In the nature of transparency under the Freedom of Information Act, demonstrating how public grant funding is being spent, I request that all responses are reviewed and that a number of Section 43 exemption responses are re-addressed. It is also worth noting that other London Boroughs have set the precedence and have supplied full responses to every one of the 27 questions, including pricing.

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
