On the contrary Nath, I think the BBC's response has been very helpful, in that they have failed to redact most of the disclosure documents properly.
You can read about TV Licensing's search warrant statistics, extracted from the documents above, here:
http://tv-licensing.blogspot.co.uk/2016/...
I really would expect the BBC to blub to WDTK.com and ask for the disclosed documents to be undisclosed.
I'd urge WDTK.com to ignore any such request.

The BBC has been in touch about their redaction failure, and we're seeking to establish if there is any material which we should remove from public view.

We only remove material if we are legally required to do, or in exceptional, very rare cases of clear moral need to do so. Our legal obligations are not the same as a public body's.

As far as we know at the moment, there doesn't appear to be any compelling reason for us to remove any information published on this request.

Thanks for sharing Doug.

I know from past experience that the WDTK team always take the reasonable and pragmatic approach to such questions; and I'm confident that this instance will be no different.

Rob Warner left an annotation ()

I cannot resist the urge to gloat.

It is well deserved karma for a bureaucracy that has exploited FOI rules for their own advantage for years. Not forgetting the vast numbers of the public that get bullied on their doorsteps every single day.

Even more satisfying to see the BBCs request to have the document redacted on their behalf, refused.

TV Licensing blogspot have kindly written an article about what the document reveals, which you can read here:

http://crimebodge.com/the-shocking-truth...

Doug Paulley left an annotation ()

We have removed the name of the employee who sent responses to this request. We did so at the request of Peter Farrell, Head of Legal BBC Workplace and Information Rights, and at the request of the employee concerned. We did so because we have received assurances that the employee is a relatively junior employee who was not responsible for the failed redaction or any other aspects of preparing the response, and because the employee expressed concern at derogatory comments about them elsewhere.

We took into consideration that the employee's name is only present in the From: field of the emails and not in the body of any of the emails.

Just to be 100% clear: we have not removed or changed any element of the BBC's response to this Freedom of Information request. The bodies and attachments of all the emails on this thread remain exactly as they have always been. We have not acquiesced to the BBC's separate request that we remove the poorly redacted material.

OK, my original annotation was censored - as the BBC seem very embarrassed about the actual identity of "Who" made the Gigantic mistake of revealing chapter & verse, most of the Capita/BBC secrets, that they would rather the people why pay for them (The Licence payers) not know about.

So to save another FOI request being made, MR FARRELL WHO actually authorised the BBC response in this particular enquiry?

Mark Salter left an annotation ()

Unless Mr Farrell does pay this site a visit, he won't see your question, but a new FOI request won;t take long to raise if you would like to seek that detail.

I personally think that the detail in the email flurry after the response was noticed would be more interesting - and likely include the detail you mentioned.

They visit. They read these comments. Believe me they do.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of British Broadcasting Corporation's handling of my FOI request 'Monthly Performance Pack'.

In my original request email dated 2nd Jan I asked "Please furnish me with a copy of the Monthly Performance Pack for the last 3 years and also the 10 day report." I expected this to include year Apr 205 - May 2016 which is the most recent year. Please could you provide this information and let me know why this wasn't included when it was requested?

Please don't let this take 6 months like the last one did...

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/m...

Yours faithfully,

Nath

The problem you'll have Nath is that when your request was made, back in Jan 2016, the most recent Monthly Performance Pack was the 2014-15 one. That's what they'll say. The fact they've dragged their feet for 6 months is of no relevance to them at all - it's pretty habitual behaviour for the BBC to offer two fingers to those requesting information.
How I wish they had released the March 2016 pack as well. I bet there'd be some right gems in there that they also forgot to redact!

It's another of these delaying notices. We seem to have seen a lot of these recently, ever since the BBC botched the redaction of your earlier disclosure documents.
I wonder if they're going to keep you waiting for another 4 months now?!

According to Doug's annotation the take down request was made by Peter Farrell, Head of Legal BBC Workplace and Information Rights, plus the nameless (but we all know who) employee concerned:
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/m...

Given Mr Farrell's job title, I'd suggest he'd count as a senior BBC employee and the information produced by him should be up for grabs.

Peter Jones left an annotation ()

My above annotation should have been posted to another one of the Nath's requests:
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/t...
It makes more sense then.
