Information Request, Canal & River Trust

Dear Ms Smith,

 

Further to your request of 26^th July and our subsequent acknowledgement
of the same date, please see our responses to your queries below.

 

Please provide a copy of the notes or minutes of the meeting on 25th July
2017 with the Navigation Advisory Group (licensing and mooring) and CRT
Council boaters' representatives regarding the Licensing Review.

We have withheld this information from disclosure in accordance with
Section 22 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 as it is intended for
future publication. We have carried out the public interest test in
relation to this exemption. The arguments for disclosure of these notes
are that it is generally accepted that disclosure of information can
increase transparency, accountability and trust in an organisation.
However, the arguments against disclosure are that it is our intention, as
with all formal meeting notes, to make these available on our website in
due course. They will be published on our meetings page when they
finalised and agreed with the chair. The risks of prior publication cannot
be mitigated adequately by providing explanatory commentary alongside any
disclosure. Also, publishing these notes at this stage is likely to lead
to confusion if changes are made to the notes at a later date and it leads
to more than one version of them being available online. Therefore, we are
withholding these notes at this stage.

 

Please also provide copies of any documents, reports or other information
circulated to attendees in advance of the meeting.

The information you have requested here is not held the Canal & River
Trust. No such documents or reports were circulated in advance of the
meeting.

 

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the
right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be
submitted within two months of the date of this email and should be sent
by email to [1][email address] or by post to
Information Officer, Legal Department, Canal & River Trust, First Floor
North, Station House, 500 Elder Gate, Milton Keynes, MK9 1BB. Please
remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.
You are also able to contact the Information Commissioner by telephoning
0303 123 1113 although please note they would usually expect you to have
gone through our internal review procedure before contacting them.

 

Kind regards,

 

Frazer Halcrow

Information Officer Assistant
