Current and historical Registers of Interest data

We're waiting for Ally Tibbitt to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Gloucester City Council,

Please treat this email as a Freedom of Information request.

I would like to receive a copy of the complete current local authority Register of Interest for all elected politicians in a machine-readable spreadsheet format such as a CSV file, including any additional information that may not be published on your website.

If you hold records relating to historical registers of interest for current and former elected politicians I would be grateful if you could also supply them.

I would also like to receive a copy of the complete current local authority Gifts and Hospitality Registers for all elected politicians in a machine-readable spreadsheet format, including any data that may not be published on your website.

If you hold historical records of gifts or hospitality received for current and former elected politicians I would be grateful if you could also supply them.

Lastly, if you hold a separate register of interests that records those declared at meetings, please also supply that register in a machine-readable spreadsheet format. Again, if you hold historical records of declarations that may not be published on your website, please supply details.

I would prefer not to receive the requested information in pdf format files.

If the requested information is published as open data, please could you supply the location where this data can be found.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Yours faithfully,

Ally Tibbitt

Thank you for your request for information received on 25^th February 2020

Your request is being handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000
(FOIA).

 

Please find below Gloucester City Council’s response to your request for
information. 

 

Q. I would like to receive a copy of the complete current local authority Register
of Interest for all elected politicians in a machine-readable spreadsheet format
such as a CSV file, including any additional information that may not be
published on your website.

 

If you hold records relating to historical registers of interest for current and
former elected politicians I would be grateful if you could also supply them.

 

I would also like to receive a copy of the complete current local authority
Gifts and Hospitality Registers for all elected politicians in a
machine-readable spreadsheet format, including any data that may not be
published on your website.

 

If you hold historical records of gifts or hospitality received for current and
former elected politicians I would be grateful if you could also supply them.

 

Lastly, if you hold a separate register of interests that records those declared
at meetings, please also supply that register in a machine-readable spreadsheet
format. Again, if you hold historical records of declarations that may not be
published on your website, please supply details.
A. I can confirm that Gloucester City Council holds the information you requested.
However we are withholding that information since we consider that the absolute
exemption under section 21 of the FOIA applies to it:

 

 1. Information which is reasonably accessible to the applicant otherwise than
under section 1 is exempt information
 2. For the purposes of subsection (1) –

 a. Information may be reasonably accessible to the applicant even though it is
accessible only on payment and
 b. Information is to be taken to be reasonably accessible to the applicant if
it is information which the public authority or any other person is obliged
by or under any enactment to communicate (otherwise than by making the
information available for inspection) to members of the public on request,
whether free of charge or on payment.

 3. For the purpose of subsection (1), information which is held by a public
authority and does not fall within subsection (2)(b) is not to be regarded
as reasonably accessible to the applicant merely because the information is
available from the public authority itself on request, unless the
information is made available in accordance with the authority’s publication
scheme and any payment required is specified in, or determined in accordance
with, the scheme.

 

All declarations are available using the following link:
