This is a flagrant abuse of the FOI Act, but fair enough. It's better that some people abuse a system which gives some the opportunity to hold authorities to account, than no system exist at all.

How is this lagrant abuse of the FOI Act?
I'm more concerned with the response from Essex Council. An official FOI request was made to Essex council and it was treated with total disregard. A short simple factual answer would have sufficed.

I wonder if this has been sent in error as I note the headed paper that is used is incomplete?
