Please note:

Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) places two duties
on public authorities.  Unless exemptions apply, the first duty at Sec
(1)(a) is to confirm or deny whether the information specified in a
request is held.  The second duty at Sec (1)(b) is to disclose information
which is permitted to the public domain and that has been confirmed as
being held.  Where exemptions are relied upon s17 of FOIA requires that we
provide the requester with a notice which: a) states fact b) specifies
exemption(s) in question and c) states (if that would not otherwise be
apparent) why exemption applies.

Section 12 (1) of the Freedom of the Freedom of Information Act states
that a public authority is not obliged to:…. “comply with a request for
information if the authority estimates that the cost of complying with the
request would exceed the appropriate time limit of 18 hours of an officers
time to manually review records, retrieve and collate the data which we
are not obliged to do under the act if to do so would exceed the 18 hour
time limit.

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your FOI request, you have
the right to ask for us to conduct an internal review.

If you are not content with the outcome of our internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision.  The information Commissioner can be contact on 0303 123 1113 or
01625 545 745.
