understand that under the Act, you are required to advise and
assist requesters.(Section 16 / Regulation 9).

If my request is denied in whole or in part, I ask that you justify
all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the act. I
will also expect you to release all non-exempt material. I reserve
the right to appeal your decision to withhold any information or to
charge excessive fees.

If any of this information is already in the public domain, please
can you direct me to it, with page references and URLs if
necessary.

Please confirm or deny whether the requested information is held ( section (Section 1(1)(a) and consider whether information should be provided under section 1(1)(b), or whether it is subject to an exemption in Part II of the Act.

If the release of any of this information is prohibited on the
grounds of breach of confidence, I ask that you supply me with
copies of the confidentiality agreement and remind you that
information should not be treated as confidential if such an
agreement has not been signed.

It's always interesting to compare the PHSO's communications with external organisations.

PHSO seems to lose so much.

Dear J T Oakley

 

Your information request (FDN-253457)

 

I am writing in response to your email of 4 April 2016, in which you asked
for all communications between PHSO and the website Whatdotheyknow.com
between 4 April 2015 and 4 April 2016.

 

Please find attached all the information we hold that falls within the
scope of your request.  Some third party personal data has been removed
from the attached documentation because it is exempt in line with section
40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

I hope that this information is helpful.  If you are unhappy with my
handling of your request, it is open to you to request an internal
review.  Beyond that, you can complain to the Information Commissioner’s
Office ([1]www.ico.org.uk).

 

Yours sincerely
