It might be useful to determine how many have been refused using exceptions under the FOIA and which exceptions have been used.

Then submit a freedom of information request.

I have, but don't want to become vexatious by asking another on a related subject until they have answered. Currently, I understand that they the council might have breached article 16 of the FOIA in relation to my question, and I'm waiting for an admission from them.. doubtless they record all their breaches of FOIA..
