Dear Leeds City Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Leeds City Council's handling of my FOI request 'Leeds city council public purse'.

you can stop all these requests under foia by makign a effort to answer the complaint of abuse honestly.you have failed to answer questions other councils have done easily and it shows you are happy for dps abuse to continue .by answerign honestly you could stop all this abuse .by not answering you only show others that their is a obvious reason you dont want to answer

you have been negligent and your partners have commited fraud .if you still ignore these requests you are going to waste even more public purse.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/l...

Yours faithfully,

steve

Dear Leeds City Council,

given the importance of our requests we believe it is time to reduce the number of requests.the number of requests are purely down to your failure to answer requests on time and in a honest and responsible manner

however from our part we can see your current admittance of liability via your silence and therefore no longer need this request answering

you can still answer if you feel it is in the publics interest

Yours faithfully,

steve

Dear Steve Perkins,

Freedom of Information Request (Ref: 254204)

I refer to the above and your requests dated between 5th October 2019 & 9th January 2020. I have contacted the relevant services and now provide a response to your requests.

I have amalgamated the 25 requests that you have put in, I have attached the list of questions and answers. We have not answered any questions which asked for an opinion as these are not coved by FOI.

I trust that this response is satisfactory. If however you are dissatisfied with this response you have a right to appeal to an independent officer within the council. They will re-examine your request and assess whether we have adhered to the requirements of the act. Should you wish to follow this course of action please address your concerns in writing to the above address.

You also have a right under Section 50 of the Freedom of Information Act to ask the Information Commissioner to decide whether we have met with our obligations under the act. The Commissioner has however made it clear that she expects all applicants to exhaust internal appeals procedures prior to making such an application. Should you wish to contact the Commissioner's office then you can write to the following address:

Office of the Information Commissioner, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

You may also contact the Commissioner via her website at www.ico.org.uk

I trust that this is self-explanatory. If you have any queries please contact me using the contact information above.

Dear Knight, Olivia,

we have told you this

can you not behave in any way the way you should do

Yours sincerely,

steve

Dear Knight, Olivia,

the ico have written to you reminding you hwo you should reply and this means replying to each individual post on the request id it was requested

this means you answer under each question and it is seen in the public domain

we will not as the ico agree with accept you amlgamating answers so they are not answered in the correct place in the public domain

we look forward to seeing the answers for every outstanding freedom of info request some of which are significantly late

we have been more than patient in waiting months for you to become responsible and the ico are beginning to see how you are trying to obstruct

it is now the time for someone with some moral compass to take over the answering of these questions so you can at least look like you are respecting the duty of care

Yours sincerely,

steve

it also allows us to point out where we believe you are deliberately obstructing

we do not accept amalgamated answers aimed to frustrate and obstruct

IMG.Requests, Leeds City Council

Dear Steve,

I am sorry you were not happy with the response provided to your 25 requests. I have reviewed your concerns as the manager of the information management and governance requests team and provide the following response in accordance with stage 2 of the councils complaints procedure for freedom of information requests.

Having reviewed your 25 original requests, I consider that amalgamating the questions was a fair and reasonable way to respond as all the requests you submitted related to broadly the same matter. As such I do not believe there is any requirement to provide separate responses to each of your 25 requests.

In addition having reviewed the response to your questions I consider that appropriate responses have been provided in all cases where your questions are for recorded material held by the council, and not requests for the opinions of the council on particular matters. I do not therefore uphold your appeal.

This concludes my response at stage 2. If you remain dissatisfied you may contact the information commissioner's office via their website, www.ico.org.uk.
