Local and General Election Candidate Safety & Security

The request was successful.

Dear Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council,

I am writing to respectfully access my rights in lieu of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and therefore make the following request:-

1. Please can you confirm whether you currently have any policy in which relates to the safety and security of parliamentary and local candidates in elections? If so, please provide a copy.

2. Details of the number of incidents reported to yourselves which relate to parliamentary or local candidates being assaulted or abused for the past three years? (This can include events relating to physical and non physical incidents).

3. Confirm whether the authority plans to provide advice and/or guidance on safety and security on which parliamentary or local candidates can access in the future?

4. Confirm that the authority takes it 'duty of care' towards local and parliamentary candidates seriously and if so provide details which confirm reasonable adjustments and/or steps have been taken to properly advise prospective candidates on such matters.

I look forward to hearing from you soon, and in any event no later than the prescribed 20 working days.

Yours faithfully,

Ryan Jarvis

Tracy Moorby, Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council
