Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

Please could you bear in mind when considering this request ICO decision notice FS50509081 https://ico.org.uk/media/action-weve-tak... (in relation to the application of section 12 (FOI) or regulation 12 (EIR)) which states that costs cannot be used as a reason to refuse this request), ICO decision notice FS50569254 https://ico.org.uk/media/action-weve-tak... (which states that apart from the part of that request that relates to Adoption/Fostering Panels that you cannot class such a request as vexatious), ICO decision notice FS50596346 ( https://ico.org.uk/media/action-weve-tak... ) in relation to the application of FOIA section 36 to parts 8 and 9 of this request) and also the First-tier Tribunal decision in EA/2016/0033 http://informationrights.decisions.tribu... (in relation to section 36).

This request is for minutes (whether in draft or approved form) of the meeting (as my previous request was interpreted as minutes of multiple meetings I will clarify and state this is for the minutes of one meeting only) of the following committees in relation to the most recent meeting held prior to this request being made (20th April 2019).

1) Education Staff Panel,
2) Standing Advisory Committee on Religious Education (SACRE)*
3) Wirral Children's Trust Board
4) Young Peoples' Advisory Group
5) Corporate Parenting Group
6) School's Joint Consultation Committee
7) Wirral Climate Change Group
8) Members' Development Steering Group
9) Members' Equipment Steering Group
10) Birkenhead Park Advisory Committee
11) Hilbre Island Nature Reserve Management Committee

*Please note that regulation 7 of the Religious Education (Meetings of Local Conferences and Councils) Regulations 1994, see http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1994/... makes the minutes of the public meetings of SACRE open to public inspection so I expect the minutes to be supplied without redactions.

I remind you of your duty to provide advice and assistance.

In order to be helpful, I regard parts 7, 10 and 11 to be requests made under the Environmental Information Regulations 2014, although there may be parts of the rest that are classified as requests under that legislation too.

Yours faithfully,

John Brace
