Current and historical Registers of Interest data

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

Dear Midlothian 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politicians in a machine-readable spreadsheet format such as a CSV file, including any additional information that may not be published on your website.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Hospitality Registers for all elected politicians in a machine-readable spreadsheet format, including any data that may not be published on your website.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 Again, if you hold historical records of declarations that may not be published on your website, please supply details.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

Dear FOI Requester,

 

I regret that the COVID 19 virus has impacted negatively on the Council’s
ability to respond timeously to your request,

I would therefore request that you either withdraw your request and
re-submit it later or allow us more time to reply. The Council will seek
to reply to all requests in due course but at present all staff and
resources have been diverted to delivering our core statutory functions as
a Category 1 Responder.
