The request was successful.

Dear Carmarthenshire Council,

I would like to know, for each year from 2010 to present, how many occasions council employees have found themselves subject to disciplinary procedures concerning the use of council IT facilities for personal use, and what the eventual measures taken against the employee were.

I am interested in any cases which had an outcome ranging from a note being made on the employee's HR record through to dismissal for gross misconduct. I am perfectly happy for this data to be anonymised.

Please contact me if you have any queries.

Yours faithfully,

Martin Milan.

Dear Mr Tillman,

Many thanks for your reply.

You mention that you are only able to supply information for 2012 / 2013, but unfortunately, haven't justified why the other data isn't available. Can I ask what the nature of the problem is?

Furthermore, can I confirm that you this data does indeed relate solely to the misuse of Council IT facilities for personal matters?

I'm grateful for your assistance.

Yours sincerely,

Martin Milan
