LGA Press Release

Tony Parker made this Freedom of Information request to Leicestershire County Council

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

The request was refused by Leicestershire County Council.

Dear Leicestershire County Council,

Leicestershire County Council was recently mentioned in a list of strange requests issued by the LGA in an attempt to discredit the FOI process. The Leicestershire County Council request was about roundabouts. I would like to request the following information about the Council's involvement.

Did Leicestershire County Council approach the LGA about this FOI request or was the Council approached by the LGA? If the LGA used the Leicestershire County Council request without consulting the council, please confirm this.

I would like to request copies of correspondence between the Council and the LGA about this request and how these would be used.

I would like to request copies of any correspondence received by Leicestershire County Council from the LGA on the subject of FOI generally in the last 12 months. Please limit any search to Chief Executive’s team, the Public Relations Team, and those staff dealing with FOI requests.

Yours faithfully,

Tony Parker

Leicestershire County Council
