Gerald Vernon-Jackson Travel Patterns

P Dixin made this Freedom of Information request to Portsmouth City Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Portsmouth City Council,

I am very interested in the travel patterns of Gerald Vernon-Jackson. REALLY INTERESTED.

Please could you provide the details of all of his trips to London in the past 12 months. I would like to know the dates, destination and mode of transport used.

I treat London as the area within the M25.

In addition, please could you confirm why Gerald Vernon-Jackson knows the signs on the eastbound approach to Junction 10 on the M25 and what journeys he has been undertaking to notice these.

Thank you for your help.

Yours faithfully,

P Dixin

Gerald has made two lovely comments.

http://www.portsmouth.co.uk/news/transpo...

Portsmouth City Council leader Gerald Vernon-Jackson said the changes were good news. ‘I use trains all the time and I never take the car to London,’ he said.

Councillor Gerald Vernon-Jackson wrote to the Highways Agency saying there isn’t anything on the eastbound carriageway at junction 10 – where it meets with the A3 Portsmouth Road – which tells motorists they can travel to Portsmouth.

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 - INFORMATION REQUEST

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

 

Thank you for your request for information received on 06/02/2013.

 

Your request is being considered and, subject to the points made below,
you will receive the information requested as promptly as possible within
the statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.

 

If we need to obtain more information from you in order to understand what
information you require, we will contact you. If this is the case, the 20
days time limit will not commence until your request has been clarified.

The Act defines a number of exemptions that may prevent release of certain
information.  The City Council will consider whether any of these
exemptions apply and, where required by the Act, whether it is in the
public interest to release the information.  If we have to make a public
interest test, the 20 day time limit might be extended. We will inform you
if the time scale has to be extended and if any information is withheld
and of your rights of appeal.

 

The City Council would like to make you aware that disclosure of
information obtained through FOIA is a disclosure into the public domain.

 

The City Council’s standard approach is to provide the information in the
form in which we hold it.  If you require alternative formats, e.g. audio,
large print, etc. or a different language, please let me know and we will
provide it if reasonably practicable to do so. If your request is a
question and we do not hold the answer in recorded form we will try and
provide an answer where we are able unless it requires the creation of new
information.

There may be a fee payable for this information request and we will send
you a Fees Notice if this is the case. Any fee must be paid before the
request is provided.  The time between the issue of the Fees Notice and
receipt of payment is excluded from the calculation of the 20 working day
time limit.

 

Any personal information you provide in relation to this request will only
be used for the purposes of processing your request for information.

 

If you have any queries or concerns then please contact the Corporate
Information Governance Officer at Portsmouth City Council, Civic Offices,
