Contracted legal advice and Weightman's solicitors

Tony Wise made this Freedom of Information request to Lancashire Police Authority

Waiting for an internal review by Lancashire Police Authority of their handling of this request.

Dear Lancashire Police Authority,

I make this request under the Freedom of Information Act. I am interested in legal advice paid for by the Authority separately from legal servies paid for via tender from Preston Council (monitoring officer and legal services). In the first instance please supply the contract or internal information related to full services provided by Preston Council and the annual cost of that contract. In addition:

1/ Please supply all information as to any payments made to Weightman's LLP by Lancashire Police Authority for any purpose in the years 2007/08, 2008/09, 2009/10, 2010/11 and 2011/12.

2/ Please indicate the purpose of any payments made in 1/ above.

3/ Please provide information as to any contractual or other arrangements as regards the receipt of legal advice/service with Weightman's solicitors in the following years 2007/08, 2008/09, 2009/10, 2010/11 and 2011/12.

4/ Please provide all detail of any employee of Weightman's solicitors that attended upon the Lancashire Police Authority at any time in 2007/08, 2008/09, 2009/10, 2010/11 and 2011/12. Please note that I don't require any personal information if that would be a problem.

5/ Please provide the purpose of any attendance or visit as indicated in 4/ above.

6/ How long has the Lancashire Police Authority taken legal services from Weightmans solicitors?

7/ How much in total has the Lancashire Police Authority paid to Weightman's solicitors as a full aggregate in the 5 years as indicated above.

If any clarification is required please feel free to request this at any time via this site.

Yours faithfully,

Tony Wise

Dear Lancashire Police Authority,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Lancashire Police Authority's handling of my FOI request 'Contracted legal advice and Weightman's solicitors'.

I am confused as to why so much public money is spent on Weightmans at such time as you have a contract for "legal advice" etc from Preston City Council. This contract costs over £20,000 per year. Please also supply some explanation of the headings in the spreadsheets during a full review of this request.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Yours faithfully,

Tony Wise
