Stuart Hardwicke CARRUTHERS

Dear Sir or Madam,

Is it the intention of the Commission for Local Administration in England ('CLAE') to conform with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and publish all minutes and agendas of its meetings. The Information Commissioner on 31 July 2008 published guidance on this issue, and this information appears to have been excluded from the Publication Scheme on the LGO Website.

If it is not the intention of the CLAE to publish its minutes and agendas on the Local Government Ombudsmen Website within the next 20 days - please forward copies of all minutes and agendas since the FOI came into force (30 November 2000) and identify clearly if the minutes and agenda are edited or unedited.

Additionally, if it should not be the intention of the CLAE to comply with the FoI Act please forward copies of all documents identifying its reasons.

Yours faithfully,

Stuart HARDWICKE CARRUTHERS

Hilary Pook, The Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman
