Dear Audit Commission,
Please can you provide me with a list of joint committees as defined by section 102 of the Local Government Act 1972.

If you cannot provide a full list please provide the names of as many as possible.

In so far as this request relates to joint committees which appear to have an environmental function please apply the Environmental Information Regulations 2004.

Yours faithfully,

John Cross

Freedom of Information,

Dear Mr Cross,

Thank you for your email.

The appointment of committees and joint committees under s102 of the Local
Government Act 1972 is a legal requirement for councils in England, but
there is no requirement to inform the Audit Commission of these. We
therefore do not hold the requested information.

The information you are looking for could be held by the Local Government
Association ([1]www.lga.gov.uk) or perhaps the Department for Communities
and Local Government ([2]www.communities.gov.uk), but we cannot be
certain.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,

Dan Allbon

Dan Allbon,

Dear Mr Cross,

Reference: RFI 1231

Further to my email yesterday, I have now been informed that we do hold a
small list of joint committees. We hold information about committees that
are audited by appointed auditors and who have a total annual spend of £1
million or more.

I will now collate this information and send it to you as soon as
possible.

Please accepts my sincere apologies for our initial oversight.

Yours sincerely,

Dan Allbon
