Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

This is a request for an electronic copy of the initialled and signed minutes of the following 3 public meetings (by that I mean a copy of the signed and initialled loose leaf minutes of these meetings which will be held in a book of minutes, as referred to in the Local Government Act 1972, Sch 12 para 41, see: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1972... )

i) Regeneration and Environment Policy and Performance Committee 15th September 2015
ii) Regeneration and Environment Policy and Performance Committee 2nd December 2015
iii) Council 14th December 2014

Preferably I would prefer it as one electronic PDF file of the minutes for each of the three meetings rather than a file for each page of the minutes requested.

Yours faithfully,

John Brace

Corrin, Jane, Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council

Dear Mr. Brace,

 

Thank you for your recent request made under the Freedom of Information
Act 2000.  You have asked for an electronic copy of the initialled and
signed minutes from specific meetings, listed below:-

 

i) Regeneration and Environment Policy and Performance Committee 15th
September 2015

ii) Regeneration and Environment Policy and Performance Committee 2nd
December 2015

iii) Council 14th December 2014

The Council is unable to disclose these documents to you as they contain
initials and or a signature which identifies a living individual;
therefore the signature comes within the definition of Personal Data and
as such is subject to the provisions of The Data Protection Act 1998.  An
extract from the Information Commissioner’s website defines Personal Data,
see below.    

What is personal data?

Personal data means data which relate to a living individual who can be
identified –

(a) from those data, or

(b) from those data and other information which is in the possession of,
or is likely to come into the possession of, the data controller,

and includes any expression of opinion about the individual and any
indication of the intentions of the data controller or any other person in
respect of the individual.

 

 

The Council therefore considers the disclosure of the initials and or
signature is exempt under Section 40 (2) of the Freedom of Information Act
2000.  Disclosure of the requested information would contravene the Data
Protection Act 1998.  

 

I understand from your request that you do not wish to have a copy of the
documents released to you which have no initials or signature attached to
them.  If my understanding is incorrect then I have provided a link to
where you can view the documents in question:

You have the right under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000
to ask for an internal review of the refusal to supply the information
requested.  Please direct any request for an internal review to
[4][Wirral Borough Council request email] and your request will be allocated for
review.

 

If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of an internal review you also
have the right to complain to the information Commissioner, whose office
is situated at:
