Booking On/Off Records for B4 Areas

Simon Brown made this Freedom of Information request to Defence Infrastructure Organisation

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

Defence Infrastructure Organisation did not have the information requested.

Dear Defence Infrastructure Organisation,

I am interested in copies of records held that are created as per Part 3 DRY TRAINING AREA (DTA) ORDERS FOR AREAS B, D, E, F, G, & H, order no. 34 entitled "Booking on and off" and marked section "a" of the Standing Orders for Aldershot Training Areas and Miscellaneous Training Facilities, which reads as follows:

"All units are to book on and book off the DTA through the recognised Guardroom for the training area being used, see Reference G, Part 1, Page 11, Para 23-29 for details and in addition ring the training Estates SE Ops Room prior to and on completion of all training."

For the following training areas:

B4a
B4b
B4d
B4e
B3

For the dates 1st March 2021 to 28th February 2022 inclusive.

Should it be necessary to reduce the scope of this request I will accept records held by the recognised guard room for these areas, and the scope may be further restricted to areas B4d and B4e respectively. Furthermore, should the scope prove to fall outside of reasonable limits I will accept a subset of the request.

An indication as to the type of user - civilian or military - would be useful.

Yours faithfully,

Simon Brown

Dear Defence Infrastructure Organisation,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Defence Infrastructure Organisation's handling of my FOI request 'Booking On/Off Records for B4 Areas'.

Firstly, the information was held for the period September 2020 to February 2021 inclusive. The DTA Orders for the area in question clearly state the guard room and operations room are likely to hold copies of records.

An internal review is therefore required to confirm the status of both sets of records.

Secondly, Section 16 requires any authority to provide advice and assistance.

With this in mind we would be grateful for assistance in identifying:

The correct wording to identify and re-request the records or;
To correctly identify the correct custodian of the records or;
What documentation exists to supersede the requirements set out in DTA orders or;
Any notice or order in place to destroy records.

We believe there is limited scope for declining to offer assistance in this case.

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,

Simon Brown

The internal review that will involve a full, independent reconsideration of the handling of the Request for Information under the Freedom of Information Act as well as the final decision.
