Dear Sir/Madam

 

Freedom of Information Act 2000

 

Further to your request for information under the Freedom of Information
Act, please find attached the response from Wrexham County Borough
Council.  However question 3 is subject to a partial exemption as per the
following:

 

Section 40(2) – Third Party Personal Information

Under section 40(2) of the Act information is exempt information where it
constitutes the personal information of a third party and its disclosure
would result in a breach of the Data Protection principles under the Data
Protection Act 1998 or the information would be exempt under Part IV of
that act. The first Data Protection principle requires the Council to
process information fairly and lawfully. Processing includes the
disclosure of information. In order for information to be processed
fairly, the processing must also meet one of the conditions under schedule
2 of the Data Protection Act 1998 (and in addition, schedule 3 where
sensitive personal data is concerned). In relation to the second part of
question 3, disclosure of the information requested would be likely to
lead to the identification of individuals, in breach of the first Data
Protection Principle.

 

If you are unhappy with the way the Council has handled your request, you
may ask for an internal review.  Please contact [1][Wrexham Council request email]
01978 292000 if you require an internal review of your case.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision.  The Information Commissioner can be contacted at – Wycliffe
House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AS, telephone 01625 545745,
