Dear West Midlands Police and Crime Panel,

Thank you for your mail of 16 February. As you do not hold the information to respond to my questions below (within the quotations), who does hold this information, please?

“In the overall department and within the Dangerous Dogs Unit over each of the years 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 (or the last period for which full information is held):
1. Of the dogs seized each year under Section 1, how many were released under the
Interim Exemption Scheme?
2. Of the dogs seized under Section 1 each year, how many were put to sleep?
3. Is there a plan in place to introduce within the Crown Prosecution Service a dedicated
court process which would deal specifically with dangerous dog cases and related
crime? If so, by what date?”

Yours faithfully,

L. A. Jourdan

Dear West Midlands Police and Crime Panel,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of West Midlands Police and Crime Panel's handling of my FOI request 'Dogs seized under the Dangerous Dogs Act'.

In a previous response, West Midlands Police and Crime Panel said they do not hold the information requested. I would like to know who does hold the information originally requested, please?

My original questions were:

“In the overall department and within the Dangerous Dogs Unit over each of the years 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 (or the last period for which full information is held):
1. Of the dogs seized each year under Section 1, how many were released under the
Interim Exemption Scheme?
2. Of the dogs seized under Section 1 each year, how many were put to sleep?
3. Is there a plan in place to introduce within the Crown Prosecution Service a dedicated
court process which would deal specifically with dangerous dog cases and related
crime? If so, by what date?”
