Email addresses:
To help prevent spam I have created a space after the @ sign, please delete this space when using the email addresses to search your email system.

Concerning disclosure of email messages there is no need to disclose header data and I can accept disclosure of email messages converted to PDF, so long as the accessibility conditions below are adhered to. With regards any associated attachments please provide them in accordance with the notes below.

: Your correspondence :

Please ensure that any of your general correspondence,
acknowledgements or holding letters etc are included or
cut-and-pasted into the body of the email messages, using plain
text, rather than as attachments. As this will mean your
correspondence is much easier to access, read and respond to.

: Accessibility :

When providing any information disclosures please provide it in the
original unrestricted format such as:

a. MS Word .doc or Rich Text Text .rtf format or equivalent
(suitable for disclosure of email messages)

b.Spreadsheets in MS Excel .xls format or equivalent

c.Presentations in MS Powerpoint .ppt format or equivalent

or converted to Portable Document Format (PDF), ONLY if none of the
above formats are available

if you only have a paper version (hard copy) available, please
provide a Digital Photo Copier Scanned version in PDF format. If
you do provide disclosures in PDF from a Digital Photo Copier Scan,
please state that you have done so because no other format, such as
a, b or c above, are available.

If you need to redact text elements of any disclosure can you
please ensure that the rest of text based information remains
accessible to a Screen Reader.
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screen_reader>

Please ensure any electronic disclosures are absolutely free of any
Document Restrictions and Encryption or Passwords, as this is
likely to render them less usable on a general basis and more
specifically, inaccessible to Assistive Technology.

Please do not send any information in compilation archive formats,
such as .zip.

Providing correspondence and disclosed information via these means
will help ensure that text based information is accessible for use
with a Screen Reader or a Magnifier for none text based information
and will prevent any further and separate representations under the
Disability Discrimination Act. If you are unable to meet these
reasonably practicable accessibility requests please state why and
provide a copy of any internal information, such as a policy relied
upon that would explain such a decision.

Yours faithfully,

Cassidy, J

Dear Cassidy, J

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 - INFORMATION REQUEST

I acknowledge your request for information received on 29 May 2009.

Your request is being considered and we are required to send you the
information requested within the statutory timescale of 20 working days
unless an exemption applies.

The Act defines a number of exemptions which may prevent release of the
information you have requested. There will be an assessment and if any of
the exemption categories apply, then the information will not be released.
You will be informed if this is the case, including your rights of appeal.
In addition, where an exemption requires us to consider the public
interest test, we are allowed to take longer than 20 working days to
respond to your request but the timeframe must be reasonable. In this
circumstance we would keep you informed of our target time for dealing
with your request.

We also may have to ask you for further information to ensure that we can
fully comply with your request. In such an event we will contact you
directly to request the information.

If appropriate, the information may be provided in paper copy, normal font
size. If you require alternative formats, e.g. language, audio, large
print, etc., then please let me know.

There may be a fee payable for the information you have requested. This
will be considered and you will be informed if a fee is payable. In this
event the fee must be paid before the information is processed and
released. The 20 working day time limit for responses is suspended until
receipt of the payment, and you have three months in which to send the
fee. If you do not provide payment within three months your request will
lapse.

If you have any queries or concerns, please contact me.

Further information about the Freedom of Information Act is available from
the Information Commissioner at: Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow,
Cheshire, SK9 5AF. Telephone: (01625) 545700

Dear Christopher Hogwood,

Amendment request:

I only require information you hold that covers the last 6 months.

Yours sincerely,

Mariana Ivantsoff, London Councils

Dear Sir or Madam,

I write further to your four Freedom of Information Requests sent
to London Councils by email on the 29 May 2009 with your
references:

1. Correspondence and attachments 29 05 09; 2. Home office email
correspondence 29 05 09; 3. Local government associations and
asylum 29 05 09; and 4. UASC reform programme 29 05 09.

I regret to advise that we are unable to respond today, the final
date for response within the statutory timeframe of 20 working
days. We apologise for this delay which is due to the current
secondment of the principal employee who has been responsible for
dealing with matters relating to unaccompanied asylum seeking
children and the UASC reform programme. We will respond to your
four requests by the 8 July, but will of course endeavour to
respond before that date where possible.

Yours faithfully,

London Councils

Mariana Ivantsoff, London Councils
