John Hobson made this Freedom of Information request to Greater Manchester Combined Authority

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Greater Manchester Combined Authority,

Please would you provide by return a copy of all written communication and logs of any verbal communication, internal and external relating to the inaccurate and misleading description of the extremism described in the case study J of your document "A shared future" released this morning.

For absolute clarity you described "concerns about his extreme beliefs in relation to the environment, specifically issues around fracking." when it was specifically not, in fact, anything to do with fracking as was revealed this evening in the Guardian newspaper.

I would ask you specifically to include details of any correspondence with the police of Home Office relating to this

Yours faithfully,

John Hobson

Dear Enquiries,

Thank you for your reply., Can you explain why you have redacted the name of the individual who made the change on 20th July from whatever form of extremism was really involved to "anti-fracking"

Yours sincerely,

John Hobson

Thank you for your further email.

I have been advised that the information you refer to falls under the

Dear Emma

Thank you for your swift reply. I'm afraid I disagree that the exemption would apply in this case and would ask that you reconsider. If you prefer not to then I will request a review. Please let me know if this will be necessary.

Yours sincerely,

John Hobson

Dear Enquiries,

Yes please - a review would seem to be the appropriate action if you refuse to unredact that information.
