Dear Ipswich Buses Limited,
Would it please be possible to obtain an up-to-date listing of the destination displays used on your vehicles?
I am writing to you further to your recent freedom of information request.
Under the Freedom of Information Act and the Environmental Information Regulations you have a right to request any recorded information held by a public authority, such as a government department, local council or state school. Environmental information requests can also be made to certain non-public bodies carrying out a public function.
As you may be aware Ipswich Buses Ltd is a Private Limited Company registered with companies’ house under the companies act and as such is not a public body.
The company has sought clarity from the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) about this matter and have been advised that as Ipswich Buses (The Company) is not a public body we are legally not obliged to answer any Freedom of Information request and therefore we will not be able to provide the information you have requested.
If you are not content with the outcome of your review, you may apply directly to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) for a decision. Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted our complaints procedure.
