Kent Registration for Birth Certificates

Ms S Foster (Account suspended) made this Freedom of Information request to Kent County Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Waiting for an internal review by Kent County Council of their handling of this request.

Ms S Foster (Account suspended)

Dear Sir or Madam,

Please can you explain why 2 different birth certificates are supplied when a child's birth if registered in the County and whether these original certificates are kept within the counties registration department or sent on and if so to which department and for what purpose.

It appears the certified copies supplied are only copies of an entry of record, not a copy of the original birth certificates;Certificate of live birth and certified copy of an entry.

Can you please state if this give the authority a right of claim over these children once registered , thereby creating a trust which would enable the state to remove children if they so desired, because they have the title/claim to these children that is greater than the parents.

Or why the full implications of registering children is not fully explained to the parents.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs Barden

Ms S Foster (Account suspended)

Dear Sir or Madam,

Apologizes ,have signed this request using my married name.

Yours faithfully,

Ms S Foster

Kent County Council

Dear Ms S Foster/Mrs Barden

Under Section 8(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, an applicant
must provide their real name for a request to be valid and fall under the
scope of the Act. I have been looking at your outstanding requests for
information and your requests for internal review namely...

Internal review of Freedom of Information request - James Carter Family
Solicitor - how many cases for/against KCC - our reference FOI/09/694
Internal review of Freedom of Information request - Families forced to
flee abroad - our reference FOI/09/695
Internal review of Freedom of Information request - Former KCC childrens
social services manager Amanda Barden - our reference FOI/09/696
Freedom of Information request - Families forced to flee abroad - our
reference FOI/09/946
Freedom of Information request - Kent Registration for Birth Certificates
- our reference FOI/09/968

... and I have good reason to believe that S Foster is not your real name
and that you are in fact utilising the name of a Kent Council Council
employee involved in children's social work. I note that you have also
submitted requests under your married name of Mrs Barden which is
coincidentally similar to a CAFCASS guardian who you have made enquiries
about.

KCC will therefore not proceed to consider the above requests, or any
further requests for information by you, or deal with any requests for
review until you are able to provide me with authentic identification
which verifies you are Ms S Foster (or Mrs Barden), for example an
original utility bill showing your full name and postal address. On
receipt of such evidence, I will progress your requests and will of course
be happy to return any documentation to you without keeping a copy on
file. If your name really is S Foster, I apologise in advance for any
inconvenience that providing proof of identity may cause you.

If you are unhappy with this decision, and object to providing proof that
you are using your real name, you can appeal to the Information
Commissioner, who oversees compliance with the Freedom of Information Act
2000. Details of what you need to do, should you wish to pursue this
course of action, are available from the Information Commissioner's
website [1]http://www.ico.gov.uk/complaints/freedom...

Ms S Foster (Account suspended)

Dear Caroline Dodge,

Please supply all evidence that shall back up your valid claim in a Court of Law.

And fully provide details of Kent County Council employee's to which you refer,... for example an
original utility bill showing their full name and postal address.

...as there could be reason to believe that Kent County Council will use any excuse not to comply with the FOIA.

There seems to be nothing coincidental between names Mrs S Barden & Mrs/Ms/Miss A Barden?
There are probably many Dodge's.

I can confirm I have never been a Kent Council
Council employee involved in children's social work such as Former KCC childrens
social services manager Amanda Barden / S Foster(Mr/Mrs/Miss/MS)

(Heaven forbid if one has been married more than once or recently divorced, is it unlawful to have had more than one name) are your assumptions Lawful?

Of course, a conditional response will be expected under your full commercial liability.

Yours truly ,

Ms S Foster

Kent County Council

Dear Ms S Foster/Mrs Barden

Information requests are made to the public authority (i.e.: Kent County
Council) not it's employees. There is no requirement under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 for a member of staff to verify who they are -
whoever responds on behalf of the authority is irrelevant for the purposes
of the Act. However for a request to fall under the scope of the Act in
the first place, the applicant must use their real name and public
authorities are entitled to ask for proof of identity if they suspect that
a pseudonym is being used.

Therefore, until you have provided proof of your identity as requested in
my previous email, KCC is not obliged to respond (and will not respond) to
any further communication from yourself. If you disagree, then it is your
right to pursue the matter with the Information Commissioner who enforces
compliance with the Act.

Best regards

Dear Caroline Dodge,

Please refrain from using my married name, you do not have my
consent to do so.

Yet again you have failed to provided anything to back up your
assumption. Is this the Councils feeble attempt to find out the
address and details of individuals to which they have no lawful
right whilst continuing to ignore the FOIA ?

Yours faithfully,

Ms S Foster

Looks like you are right there are many Dodges or at least 2 or maybe they are the same person ?

Dear Sir or Madam,

Can you please confirm whether of not Caroline Dodge and Jemila
Dodge who have both answered FOI requests on behalf of Kent County
Council are in fact related, and if so what is the policy on
relatives working within the same department?

It appears after studying FOI placed with Kent County Council that
anyone who asks too many questions is ignored or accused of
something or other so they dont have to answer.Which makes one
wonder if the staff are being prevented from answering by somebody
higher up?

Please confirm who makes the final decision when answering FOI
requests and with whom the ultimate responsibility lays.

Yours faithfully,

John Harris
