Dear London Councils,

Dear Abdul Hai

Thank you for your e-mail requesting information from us under the Freedom
of Information Act. We are currently dealing with your request.

Unfortunately, the department dealing with your request has not understood
what you mean by “centralization” of the disability Freedom Pass service.

Section 1(3) of the FOIA states that a public authority is not obliged to
comply with a request if it reasonably requires further information before
it can identify and locate the information requested. We have been unable
to interpret this part of your request as it can be read in more than one
way. By explaining further what you mean, we can be clear in providing you
with the requested information if we hold it. The statutory 20 working
days deadline for your request which is 5 December still stands and we
intend to release whatever information we hold in relation to the first
part of your request by that deadline. If we receive your clarified
request within this period we will continue to deal with your request. If
not, we will deal with it as a new request.

Many thanks
Sylvia

Dear Sylvia Edohasim,

Thank for getting back to me. I mean is more of the work associated with the freedom pass going to be done by London Councils like for example the application process rather than the local authority?

Yours sincerely,

Abdul Hai
