They can get away with it and the public needs to be informed what is happening behind closed doors, as our friends & neighbours, who dismiss our claims as "this would not happen in the UK" could be their next victim

Dear Mrs [last name removed]

Further to your recent enquiry, I am advised that the cost of complying with your request would exceed the appropriate limit of £450. The appropriate limit has been specified in regulations and for local government it is set at £450. This represents the estimated cost of one person spending 2½ working days in determining whether the Council holds the information, and locating, retrieving and extracting the information. Under section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act the Council is not obliged to comply with your request and we will not be processing your request further.

However if you were to make a new request for a more narrow category of information, it may be that we could comply with that request within the appropriate limit, although I cannot guarantee that this will be the case. If you would like to discuss this option please let me know and I will put you in touch with a Council officer who will be able to help you. Any reformulated request the Council receives from you will be treated as a fresh FOI request.

I attach the Council's appeals procedure for your reference should you require a review of this decision.

Yours sincerely

Jackie Coulston (Mrs)
Information Coordinator

Bromley must employ a lot of social workers that are corrupt or failing children if its going to take several days to go through all complaints
