Investigatory Powers Commissioner's Office inspection reports

We're waiting for Ally Tibbitt to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear North Lanarkshire Council,

Please treat this email as a Freedom of Information Request.

I would like full copies of the last two inspection reports into the practice of the local authority produced on behalf of the Investigatory Powers Commissioner's Office.

Please also supply with copies of any additional recorded communications or correspondence held by the local authority between staff at the Investigatory Powers Commissioner's Office and workers at the local authority. Please limit this latter part of my request to records generated within the last 12 months.

I understand that some parts of the reports may need to be redacted. However, I hope that this will not prevent the release of the reports, as similar inspection reports from predecessor organisations have been released to me via Freedom of Information in the past.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Yours faithfully,

Ally Tibbitt

Angelene Kirkpatrick, North Lanarkshire Council

Dear Mr Tibbitt

 

Request for Information

 

I refer again to your email dated 19 April 2022 seeking information under
the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

 

Having investigated,  please find attached the correspondence identified,
adjusted to exclude anything not relevant to your request and anything
which constitutes personal data in respect of which disclosure would
contravene the data protection principles and that this constitutes a
ground of absolute exemption in terms of Section 381(b) of the Freedom of
Information (Scotland) Act 2002.  The details edited from the documents
which are effectively being released into the public domain for all to
access, are names of individuals and a signatures.

 

I can advise that North Lanarkshire Council, having regard to the
provisions of Section 21 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act
2002, has established a procedure whereby any person who has requested
information and is in any way dissatisfied with the decision on that
request, can within forty working days require a review of that decision
by writing to the Head of Legal and Democratic Solutions, Civic Centre,
Windmillhill Street, Motherwell ML1 1AB.  Accordingly, if you are
dissatisfied with this decision and seek such review please write to the
Head of Legal and Democratic Solutions.

 

I would advise, also, that in terms of Section 47 of the Act a person who
is dissatisfied with a notice given by the local authority under Section
21 of the Act - ie. a notice following a review of a decision by a local
authority, or by the failure of a local authority to give such a notice -
may make application to the Scottish Information Commissioner for a
decision as to whether, in any respect specified in that application, the
request for information to which the requirement relates has been dealt
with in accordance with the Act.  Such an application must be made within
six months of the review decision and be in writing or in another form
which, by reason of it having some permanency is capable of being used for
subsequent reference. The application must state the name of the
applicant, and provide an address for correspondence. The application must
also specify the request for information to which the requirement for
review relates, the matter which gave rise to the applicant’s
dissatisfaction with the original decision of the local authority and the
matter which gives rise to the applicant’s dissatisfaction with the
decision on review by the local authority or the failure of the local
authority to issue such a decision.  The Scottish Information Commissioner
can be contacted as follows:-

 

Scottish Information Commissioner

Kinburn Castle

Doubledykes Road

St. Andrews

KY16  9DS

email: [1][email address]

 

Appeals to the Scottish Information Commissioner can also be made online
via the following link: -

I hope this information is sufficient for your purpose.  If, however, you
require further information – or I can assist in any other way – please
let me know.

 

Yours sincerely
