Costs incurred in the Isle of Wight VS Jon Platt Magistrates case to be heard on 23 June 2017

The request was successful.

Dear Isle of Wight Council,

once the case is FINISHED, I would like you to please provide me with a breakdown of the cost the Isle of Wight council incurred in the latest magistrates case against Jon Platt to be heard on Friday, the 23 June 2017.

1. How much was spent in total on the prosecuting barrister, including all costs (prosecution, travel, etc)?
2. How much extra cost was incurred by the council (including all administrative costs directly related to this case)?

I am aware that this case is still ongoing and hence do not expect a reply until some time after the 23 June 2017.

Yours faithfully,
Karin Siemund

Dear Ms Siemund,

Re: Information Request CRM Ref. iw17/6/17073

Thank you for your information request. Your request was received by the Isle of Wight Council on 14 June 2017 and is currently being considered. Under the Act, there is a limit for responding to requests where they exceed the Appropriate Fee Limit as set out in the Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulation 2004. The fee limit is set down by the Lord Chancellor and is £450 which equates to a maximum of 18 hours of search and retrieval time. Should your request fall into this category, we will notify you as soon as possible, to discuss any options available to you.

I note that you ask that your request be held until the conclusion of the upcoming Magistrates Court case. The Freedom of Information Act states that the request only applies to information that is held at the point of the request. This means that your request currently would only apply to information that is held up to today and we would normally ask you to resubmit your request at the relevant date (i.e. after the case is concluded). However, if it would be easier for you, we can simply pause your request until after 23rd June and restart it on 26 June (or whichever date you choose). This would then restart the 20 day period in which to reply.

Please let me know how you would like us to proceed.

If you have any complaints in respect of your information request, please write to the Corporate Information Unit, County Hall, Newport, Isle of Wight, PO30 1UD. Or by email to [Isle of Wight Council request email], or complete the on-line appeals form that can be found at http://www.iwight.com/. If your complaint is not resolved to your complete satisfaction, you have the ultimate right, once you have exhausted the internal appeals process, to appeal to the Information Commissioner.

Yours sincerely,
