Dear Sir/Madam,  

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST X04-77

 

We refer to your email dated 13 April 2018 which contained a request for
information as set out in italics below.  Following consideration of your
request, in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I respond
to each point as follows:

 

Please may you provide us with the team managers and service managers
names for all of the children's social work teams, along with their email
addresses and/or telephone numbers.

 

Please see attached structure chart for children’s services.

 

The information requested in respect of names and contact details is
exempt under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 which
states:

 

Whilst we can confirm that we hold the information requested we consider
this information is exempt under Section 40 (2) of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 which states that:

(2) Any information to which a request for information relates is also
exempt information if –

(a) it constitutes personal data which do not fall within subsection (1),
and

(b) either the first or second condition below is satisfied

(3) The first condition is-

(a) in a case where the information falls within any of the paragraphs (a)
to (d) of the definition of ‘data’ in section 1(1) of the Data Protection
Act 1998, that the disclosure of the information to a member of the public
otherwise than under this Act would contravene-

(i) any of the data protection principles

 

Section 1(1) of the Data Protection Act 1998 states that-

Personal data means data which relate to a living individual who can be
identified –

 

(a)  from those data, or

(b)  from those data and other information which is in the possession of,
or is likely to come into the possession of, the data controller,

 

and includes any expression of opinion about the individual and any
indication of the intentions of the data controller or any other person in
respect of the individual.

 

Under Section 40 of the Freedom of Information Act, the information
requested is subject to an absolute exemption.  This exemption applies
because the information requested would constitute a disclosure of
personal data.

 

The Information Commissioner’s guidance “Access to Information about
public authorities’ employees” and “When should names be disclosed?”
provide guidance on how the Authority should treat requests for
information of this nature.  The Authority considers the information
requested to be absolutely exempt from disclosure by virtue of Section
40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. 

 

The Authority does not consider that it would be fair in all the
circumstances to identify the individual as whilst the information relates
to them in their professional capacity, they would not reasonably expect
their details to be placed into the public domain.  The Authority’s
procedure is not to disclose as a matter of routine information about
members of staff below Corporate Director level.

 

Contact details for the Council’s services are available from our website:

I hope this response satisfies your request. If you are dissatisfied with
the handling of the request, under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 you
have the right to request a review of the Council’s response to your
request for information.  If you wish to request a review, please write
to:

 

Mr P A Jolley

Corporate Director, Operational and

Partnership Services and Monitoring Officer

Bridgend County Borough Council

Civic Offices,

Angel Street

Bridgend, CF31 4WB

with the outcome of that review, you may seek further recourse by lodging
an appeal with the Information Commissioner at:
