Job titles of staff that provide recorded historical data from Wirrals cctv systems to outside agencies including Merseyside Police.
Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,
Please provide me the job titles of the staff that provide historical data held in the council's cctv control room too outside agencies including Merseyside Police.
Wirral Council thanks you for your request, Wirral Council is unable to
disclose this information as the Council believes that disclosure of the
information could lead to the identification of living individuals. This
is also having regard to information we have previously released under FOI
and therefore potential further identification. The Council has relied on
section 40 (2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the Council can
place reliance on this section when disclosure of the information
requested may breach The Data Protection Act 1998.
The legislation specifies that Data Controllers, such as the Council,
have to comply with the 8 Data Protection principles.
The first principle, which is set out in Schedule 1 of the Act stats that
a Personal Data may only be processed where it is fair and lawful to do
so and where one of the conditions set out in Schedule 2 are satisfied. I
do not believe that any of the conditions in Schedule 2 are met.
To advise you further I have detailed Schedule 2 below:-
SCHEDULE 2- CONDITIONS RELEVANT FOR PURPOSES OF THE FIRST PRINCIPLE:
PROCESSING OF ANY PERSONAL DATA
1. The data subject has given his consent to the processing.
2. The processing is necessary-
(a) for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a
(b) for the taking of steps at the request of the data subject with a
view to entering into a contract.
3. The processing is necessary for compliance with any legal obligation
to which the data controller is subject, other than an obligation imposed
4. The processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests
of the data subject.
5. The processing is necessary-
(a) for the administration of justice,
(b) for the exercise of any functions conferred on any person by or under
(c) for the exercise of any functions of the Crown, a Minister of the
Crown or a government department, or
(d) for the exercise of any other functions of a public nature exercised
in the public interest by any person.
6. - (1) The processing is necessary for the purposes of legitimate
interests pursued by the data controller or by the third party or parties
to whom the data are disclosed, except where the processing is
unwarranted in any particular case by reason of prejudice to the rights
and freedoms or legitimate interests of the data subject.

2000 to ask for an internal review of the refusal to supply some of the
information requested. Please direct any request for an internal review
