Dear Northern Ireland Emergency Preparedness Groups,

Pursuant to the FOI Regulations I am requesting the following information:

1) Could you please provide a link to information on the EPG that covers the NMD District Council area in Northern Ireland?

2) In particular I am seeking the EPG Business Plan 2015-2018 (or equivalent).

3) I am also requesting the names of the Leads for each of the Emergencies that this area is potentially facing.

4) Further, how many military personnel exist in Northern Ireland today who are on stand-by or already being deployed for each of the Emergencies listed?

Yours faithfully,

Christine Gibson

Dear Richard G,

Many thanks for your prompt response and signposting to our Council for information. Could you explain why you would not hold information on all of the EPGs in Northern Ireland?

Further, although the first three questions relate to my Council area specifically, question four does not and is a general FOI question concerning NI. I would therefore be grateful if you could progress with this part under the Regulations or as BAU as previous.

With much appreciation for your assistance.

Yours sincerely,

Christine Gibson

Dear TEO CCPB,

ON 11 November 2020 I requested the following information:
"Pursuant to the FOI Regulations I am requesting the following information:
1) Could you please provide a link to information on the EPG that covers the NMD District Council area in Northern Ireland?
2) In particular I am seeking the EPG Business Plan 2015-2018 (or equivalent).
3) I am also requesting the names of the Leads for each of the Emergencies that this area is potentially facing.
4) Further, how many military personnel exist in Northern Ireland today who are on stand-by or already being deployed for each of the Emergencies listed?"

To which you replied on the same day stating that:
"Your request relates to information on the EPG that covers the Newry, Mourne and
Down Area. I am responding to you under normal course of business to facilitate a
speedier reply.

I can advise you that the Department does not hold any of the requested
information."

However, in contrast to this you then replied on 21 December to provide me with a table of all EPGs across NI and general (not specific EPG) contact details of the Councils.

From your response are you affirming that your Department is not responsible for overseeing the EPGs in Ni and if this is the case under FOI you are obliged to inform me who would be responsible to undertake this role and to provide me with their contact details.

Other than giving me general contact details you have failed to give me any of the details requested from the original request and/or signposted me to the specific person to whom each question should be directed if not yourselves.

I look forward to hearing from your in due course before I request an internal review from another member of your Department.

Yours sincerely,

Christine Gibson

TEO CCPB, Northern Ireland Emergency Preparedness Groups
