Dear Mr Smith

Thank you for your request for information.

Peter Gilroy & Associates Ltd is a newly registered company established
by Kent County Council's Chief Executive, Peter Gilroy. He has
declared the existence of this company on the senior officers' Register
of Interests, and that it will not be trading until after he has left the
employment of Kent County Council. KCC holds no
other information regarding this company, and as the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 does not oblige public authorities to CREATE
information to satisfy requests for information, KCC will not impinge
on the Chief Executive's rights of privacy, to ask for additional
information about his personal commitments outside of his employment.

If you are unhappy with this response, and believe KCC has not complied
with legislation, please ask for a review by following our complaints
process; details can be found at this link
on our website. Please quote reference FOI/09/1302.

If you still remain dissatisfied following an internal review, you can
appeal to the Information Commissioner, who oversees compliance with the
Freedom of Information Act 2000. Details of what you need to do, should
you wish to pursue this course of action, are available from the
Information Commissioner's website
