Dear Home Office,

I am making a request for information under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act.

The Police Pensions Regulations came into force on the 1st of April 1987.

I am interested in obtaining a copy of any guidance or advice that the Home Office may have given to Police Authorities and Police Forces concerning those Regulations.

If the Home Office issued any circulars containing guidance as above I would like a copy of such circular or circulars that were issued around 1987.

I am also interested in obtaining a copy of any circulars containing guidance as above that relates to the management of police injury pensions. Such circulars may have been issued some time after 1987. As all circulars from 2003 onwards are available on line, I would like you to include only any circulars that precede that date.

For the purpose of this request, you can confine your search to only Home Office circulars, but I would appreciate it if you could indicate to me if you hold other information that would assist me to research any guidance or advice that the Home Office gave to Police Authorities and Police Forces by any other means.

Yours faithfully,

Mr. P. A. [name removed]

Dear Home Office,

Could you please let me know why you have not responded to my Freedom of Information Act request?

You should have responded promptly, and no later than 31st August 2010. You are therefore in breach of the requirements of the Act.

I ask that you acknowledge this message without delay.

Yours faithfully,

Mr [name removed],

We have been experiencing some problems in sending our response to
this request to this page on the WDTK website. I am therefore
resending it via the site itself. My apologies for the delay.

Please find attached our response to your request. The information
being released will follow in subsequent postings.

Regards,

Dear Ian Lister,

Sarah Alderman provided information in response to:

FOI Ref: CR15680

Further to this response to my request for information may I ask that you revisit the submission, as you have not supplied all the information.

Sarah mentioned that the following Home Office Circulars were relevant to my request, yet you have not sent me a copy of each circular or pointed out to me where they may be available on line:

HOC 20/1987
HOC 73/1988
HOC 43/1990
HOC 55/1991
HOC 45/1995
HOC 4/2000

Similarly, she mentioned the Home Office Commentary on the Police Pension Scheme but has not supplied a copy.

Sarah provided a list of links to documents available on line from the national archives. I was able to access all but the last one of these, which is incorrect - a link that was supposed to raise HO circular 43/2002, thus:

http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.u...

The link is faulty and goes nowhere.

Would you please therefore now provide the information I have identified above as absent from your response.

Yours sincerely,

This thread used to contain a document about the appointment of a Chief Constable that the Home Office accidentally released.

We have been told by the ICO that they consider our publication of the document to be a breach of the Data Protection Act and therefore we have now removed it.
