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Registers for all elected politicians in a machine-readable spreadsheet format, including any data that may not be published on your website.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 Again, if you hold historical records of declarations that may not be published on your website, please supply details.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

Dear Ms Tibbitt,

Thank you for your recent communication which is being managed in line
with the Freedom of Information Act under the above reference number.  The
details of your request are outlined below together with the council’s
response.

Your request and Our Response

1. 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information that may not be published on your website.

The register of interests for all councillors is available online and can
be searched by members of the public through Councillor profiles. We have
hard copies of the forms which we use to update the system but we do not
have a digitised compiled list of the interests as requested.

 

2. 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.

We do have historical records but likewise these are all hardcopy and
would require manual inputting into a spreadsheet. The hardcopy would be
available to view although we would need to ensure no sensitive data was
viewable relating to Members’ personal addresses or those of their
partners etc.

 

3. 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machine-readable spreadsheet format, including any data that may not be
published on your website.

Again we have a hardcopy register but nothing digitised. This register for
members is very small.

 

4. 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

Please see attached document Appendix A

 

5. 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.

We do not hold a database of declarations at meetings. These are all
publically searchable however on the mod.gov system online.

 

You are free to use any information supplied to you for your own use,
including non-commercial research purposes.  However, any other type of

the review.

(ICO), details of this organisation can be found at [2]www.ico.org.uk .

with the council.
