Dear Ms Corderoy

 

Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002

Request for Information – Overseas Trips

 

I acknowledge receipt of your request for information dated 27 July 2018.

   

Unfortunately it is not clear from your request the exact nature of your
enquiry. In particular can you clarify the following questions:

 

‘I would like to know the number of overseas trips councillors, members of
the management team (including the chief executive), and council officers
have taken in the course of conducting council business’.

 

Could you please clarify the following:

 1. By ‘overseas’ do you mean anywhere outside the UK? Or anywhere outside
Scotland?
 2. Can you clarify what you mean by ‘council officers’? Are you asking
for this information for every Council employee? Or just senior
management and Councillors?

 

In the circumstances, I regret that your request will be on hold until
such time as your request is clarified.

 

If you need any advice or assistance then please do not hesitate to
contact me.

 

 

Yours sincerely

Responses

 

01/06/16 – 18/07/17

 

I have decided that part of your request is a repeated request that has
been recently responded to and in accordance with Section 14 (2) of the
Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, the Council is not obliged to
comply with your request.

 

Section 14 (2) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 states:
‘Where a public authority has previously complied with a request for
information which was made by any person, it is not obliged to comply with
a subsequent identical or substantially similar request from that person
unless a reasonable interval has elapsed between compliance with the
previous request and the making of the current request’.

 

The Council answered a substantially similar request from you on 11 August
2017 (Reference number: ATI 2017 07 18 002) and has concluded that a
reasonable interval has not elapsed since this information was requested.

 

19/07/17 – 27/07/18

 

Please find this information attached.

 

 

 

You have a right to request a review of the Council’s decision. Please

right of review.

 

Should you require any further explanation or assistance please do not
hesitate to contact me.
