List of Scottish Community Transport groups visited by Jesse Norman

The request was refused by Department for Transport.

Dear Department for Transport,

At questions in Parliament on 18th January Jesse Norman responded to a question from the MP for Shotts. The question was with regard to the Transport Select Committee investigation in to community transport legislation. THis legislation is reserved.

In his response Mr Norman said that he had met with CT groups up and down the country and said that the concerns raised by the Scottish MP were not what he was hearing from CT groups he had visited. Can you please provide a list of the CT groups Mr Norman has visited or directly talked to on the phone or by e-mail with regard to this matter. I am especially interested in groups he has been in touch with in Scotland.

Yours faithfully,

Sheila Fletcher

Department for Transport

Dear Department for Transport,
I submitted my request on 6 February and was expecting a response by yesterday. The response has been delayed. If this had been a complicated question I would have understood a delay but it is a VERY simple question. Who in Scotland did Jesse Norman talk to before making the response to a question in the House? He said he had spoken to people up and down the country and had not heard anything similar to what the MP for Shotts had stated.

The consultation on community transport ends on 4 May, it would be good to have a response now so that discussion can take place. Please can you inform me of when I am likely to get a response and also tell me why there has been a delay.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Department for Transport,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Department for Transport's handling of my FOI request 'List of Scottish Community Transport groups visited by Jesse Norman'.

The response suggested I visit a site listing meetings attended by Jesse Norman, unfortunately the list had not been updated since September so recent contact which the MP stated in his parliamentary response showed that he had been in contact with those affected could not be confirmed.

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,
