Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

I'd like to make an Environmental Information Regulations 2004 request for pages 3-52 (inclusive) of the Private Document Pack for Wirral Council's Business Overview and Scrutiny Committee meeting on the 27th June 2019.

With regards to the form and format of the information (regulation 6) I am requesting that it is provided electronically in .pdf format (Adobe Acrobat) with the original page numbers in the footer.

I remind you of your duty under reg. 9 to provide advice and assistance and look forward to your response within 20 working days.

Yours faithfully,

John Brace

Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Environmental Information Regulations reconsiderations.

I am writing to request a reconsideration of Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council's handling of my EIR request 'Celtic Manor report to Business Overview and Scrutiny Committee (27th June 2019)'.

I am asking for a reconsideration to Wirral Council's response to this request (see regulation 11(2)) because following this request being made on the 27th June 2019, Wirral Council failed to either provide the information requested or give reasons why the information cannot be requested within the required 20 working days (see regulation 5(2)).

Furthermore, in relation to any claims that Wirral Council may have that it can't release the report on commercial confidentiality grounds, I'll point out that an identical report went to Wirral Council's Cabinet on 8th July 2019, there was no resolution passed to exclude the press and public at this meeting, see the minutes published on your website here https://democracy.wirral.gov.uk/document... and therefore the report requested is open to public inspection (see Local Government Act 1972, s.100C(1)(d)), therefore any claim to commercial confidentiality can't be justified.

I look forward to reading your response to this reconsideration (hopefully no later than the 40 working days required by regulation 11(4)).

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

Yours faithfully,

John Brace
