Dear Public Health England,
Please provide a copy of all minutes (since PHE was formed in 2013) of meetings where a decision was taken to approve the release of data involving the office of data release.
Basic transparency and the minimum of competent governance suggests that information should be routinely published. We have been unable to find it.
We acknowledge receipt of your email and request for information, which will be treated as a request for information under statutory access legislation.
Please note that requests under the Freedom of Information Act and the Environmental Information Regulations (EIRs) will receive a response within 20 working days from the day following the date of receipt of your request.
If the request is for your personal data (i.e. a Subject Access Request) under the Data Protection Act, then we will respond within 40 calendar days.
