NESBReC Review and Internet Pornography

Scottish Natural Heritage did not have the information requested.

Dear Scottish Natural Heritage,

Can you please supply a copy of any recorded information relating to the viewing of pornography which was discussed/noted as part of the efficiency review of NESBReC which concluded around November 2013.

Could you also supply any information you have relating to the misuse of the internet at NESBReC from 2007 onward.

Yours faithfully,

Iain Lawrie

Dear Scottish Natural Heritage,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Scottish Natural Heritage's handling of my FOI request 'NESBReC Review and Internet Pornography'.

I am already aware that certain members of the NESBReC management group and review team had knowledge of this ongoing and repeated misuse over a long period of time and I find it a little hard to believe that the inefficiencies created by viewing pornography on the internet was not discussed as part of any efficiency review.

Also, it is not clear if you have included a response to the second part of my request and so I would like you to carry out an internal review to be sure that no information is available on this matter.

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

Yours faithfully,

Dear FOI,

Thank you for your response - obviously it's disappointing that there is no communication within the NESBReC management group relating to this matter, thereby allowing this gross misuse of tax payers' money to go un-noticed, which, as I understand, may include a criminal element. I would expect you to show some concern about how you are spending tax payers' money, but this doesn't really come across in your response, although I do note that you find it important to state your perceived basis of the NESBReC review, which is in no way related to my request.

As you are now aware of this serious abuse of tax payers' resources, I'm sure you will be keen to investigate why you have no knowledge of this.

If you need anything from me at this stage, please ask.

Yours sincerely,
Iain Lawrie

The following is an email sent to me. Seems that it's okay to view dirty pictures in Infrastructure Services then...

Hello Iain

Just to say, I spoke to xxxxx xxxxxxx about the issue you raised with me and referred specifically to the Council policies. As you indicated before, xxxxx gave assurances that this would not be happening again.

Thanks for your help on this.

here's another snippet requesting that I remove evidence of wrongdoing -

... go through the network drives to remove anything which may cause offence. Is this easy to do ? Is there still a trail ?

Thanks
