Freedom of Information, The Financial Conduct Authority

Our reference: FOI4495
 
Dear Mr Davies,
 
 
Thank you for your request for information under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (the Act). Your full request can be found in the
Annex.
 
Firstly, I would like to point out that under the Act, public authorities
can aggregate requests in the following circumstances:
 
•       two or more requests for information must have been made to the
same public authority;
•       they must be either from the same person, or from 'different
persons who appear to the public authority to be acting in concert or in
pursuance of a campaign' (section 12(4)(b) of the Act);
•       the requests must relate to the same or similar information; and
•       they must have been received by the public authority within a
space of 60 consecutive working days.
 
Therefore, as the FCA has received three requests from yourself on 07
April 2016, all relating to what seems to be the same topic, we are
aggregating them as one request, FOI4495.
 
Turning back to your request, we regret to inform you that for the reasons
outlined below we are having difficulty in processing your request. 
 
I cannot identify the information you have requested from the details you
have provided.
 
Your email requests are entitled Mortgage Advisors but the contents asks
for Financial Advisors.
 
To help us meet your request could you please therefore redefine it,
specifying if you are requesting a list of authorised Mortgage Advisors in
the London, Birmingham and Bristol Area or a list of Financial Advisors in
the London, Birmingham and Bristol Area.
 
I will be unable to proceed with your request without clarification of the
information you wish to receive.
 
Please note that under guidance issued by the Ministry of Justice and the
Information Commissioner's Office entitled "Freedom of Information &
Environmental Information Regulations - Hints for practitioners handling
FOI/EIR requests", the following advice has been given with regard to the
clarification of requests:
 
"The day after the clarification is received by the public authority the
20 working day period begins" (page 14).
 
I have attached the link to the Guidance for your information:
 
[1]http://ico.org.uk/~/media/documents/libr...
 
The 20 working day period will therefore commence once we have received
sufficient clarification to allow us to deal with your request.
 
If I do not receive a response within 10 days of this email I shall assume
that you no longer wish to pursue your enquiry and will therefore close
your request.  In such an event, you would need to submit a new Freedom of
Information request for any information you wish to receive.
 
You should note that, when sending this clarification letter to you, we
have not considered if any exemptions apply to the information you have
requested. This will be considered once we receive your new request.
 
Yours sincerely
