1. Please find attached a copy of Lancashire County Council Structure
Chart. We are unable to provide names and contact details for each
individual Social Worker as this is personal information, disclosure
of which into the public domain would be against the legitimate
expectations of the individuals concerned and thus unfair and a breach
of the first data protection principle as set out at schedule 1 to the
data protection act 1998.
This information is therefore absolutely exempt under section 40 (2) of
the freedom of information act by virtue of section 40 (3) (a) (i).
