Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,
I believe Birkenhead Market was privatised between the years 2006 and 2019.
Is this correct?
If this is correct who were the Council representatives that sat on the board of Directors on behalf of the Council
I cannot locate the minutes of any reports of any Council member back to the full council for consideration. Please could let me have any reports that are available.
Thank you for your recent request made under the Freedom of Information
Act, which has been received by Wirral Borough Council.
In accordance with Section 8 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, a
requester should provide their name for a request to be processed (please
see the guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office below):
What constitutes a real name?
We consider that a relatively informal approach is also appropriate in
this context. Therefore, title and/or first name with surname satisfies
the requirement for provision of a real name, as does the use by a female
applicant of her maiden name. The prime consideration is whether enough of
a person’s full name has been provided to give a reasonable indication of
that person’s identity.
Mr Arthur Thomas Roberts could satisfy Section 8(1)(b) of the FOIA by
stating his name in a request for information as “Arthur Roberts”, “A. T.
Roberts”, or “Mr Roberts”, but not by stating his name as “Arthur” or
In most cases, it will be reasonable for a real name to comprise a name by
which the person making the request is widely known and/or is regularly
used by that person and which is not an obvious pseudonym or fictitious
Once Wirral Borough Council are in receipt of your full name, your request
will be passed to the relevant department and we will aim to issue a
substantive response within 20 working days.
