Dear Mr McLean,

Freedom of Information Request Reference No: 2011120275

Thank you for your request for information about:

Copies of all emails, letters, memos., and contemporaneous notes of
telephone calls SENT and RECEIVED by your Mr Steve Newman between the
Health & Safety Executive (HSE) and the Department of Work & Pensions
(DWP) concerning FOI requests that I have made.

Your request was received on 12 December 2011 and I am dealing with it
under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the Act).

I am writing to advise you that following a search of our paper and
electronic records, I have established that the information you requested
is not held by the Health & Safety Executive. I have not been in contact
with DWP over this matter, because your previous requests concerned
requests for information held by HSE. In response to those requests HSE
informed you that we did not hold any information, so under the Act there
was no reason for me to contact DWP.
                
If you have any queries about this letter, please contact me. Please
remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.

If you are unhappy with the decisions made by HSE you may ask for an
internal review within two calendar months of the date of this letter by
writing to me.

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:

Information Commissioner’s Office
Wycliffe House
Water Lane
Wilmslow
Cheshire

Tel: 01625 545700
Fax: 01625 524510

HSE advise they do not hold the information.

Since the original FOI enquiry to the HSE, the alleged DWP-Death-Toll has now increased from 10 to 17. Three further alleged DWP-Death-Cases are being examined which will, if found to contain materially incriminating detail, bring the alleged DWP-Death-Toll up to 20.

A formal register of these deaths will now be created online in the New Year as a matter of PUBLIC RECORD.

As the HSE report their failure (via the series of FOI requests on this website) to investigate or record ANY detail on this continuing fatal DWP problematic system, the HSE have now been referred to the Information Commissioner to properly audit this evident gross breach of duty of care.

Given the HSE do not have any apparent interest in examining an escalating death toll, parallel separate legal advise is now being taken in terms of the conduct of civil servants within the HSE and the minister who is responsible for funding the HSE, and who, as a matter of concern, also occupies the position as Secretary of State for the DWP.

Finally, the issue has been referred to the appropriate police authority.

Conflict of interest?
