Dear Mr Farnet,

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 (FOIA) - INFORMATION REQUEST

The City of London (CoL) acknowledges receipt of your request for
information of 30 July (and of your subsequent related email @19.03).

Public authorities are required to respond to requests within the
statutory timescale of 20 working days beginning from the first working
day after they receive a request. The Act does not always require public
authorities to disclose the information which they hold.

The FOIA applies to the CoL as a local authority, police authority and
port health authority. The CoL is the local and police authority for the
"Square Mile", ie the historic City of London, and not for London as a
whole. Please see the following link to a map on the CoL's website, which
shows the area covered:

[1]www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/Corporation/maps/boundary_map.htm.
The CoL's port health authority functions extend beyond the City boundary.
For further information please see:

Yours sincerely,

Information Officer
City of London

Dear Mr Farnet,

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 (FOIA) - INFORMATION REQUEST

Following your request of 30 July 2010, and our acknowledgement of 2
August, the City of London (CoL) responds as follows. In so far as the
information is recorded, it is disclosed for each year in the attached
Excel documents.

<<Doc 1.xls>> <<Doc 2.xls>> <<Doc 3.xls>> <<Doc 4.xls>> <<Doc 5.xls>>
<<Doc 6.xls>>
Please note the following. If the information requested by an applicant is
not held, or a request is withdrawn, it is recorded in the attachments as
information not provided. In 2005 no record was made of the date of reply
or whether or not the information was provided. Where up to 31/3/2006 the
date of reply is not noted in the table for 2006, this was because the
date of reply was only noted if it exceeded the 20 working days statutory
deadline. Where the exact number of working days within which a request
was complied with was noted, this is also included for all years from
2006, given that the receipt date with the date of reply alone does not
show this. Under 2007 and 2008, whether or not information was disclosed
was only divided into the two categories shown. Finally, the CoL does not
have a formal referencing system. A request is referred to by name, for
example as "Farnet, wef...".

We hope that this response is of assistance.

If you wish to make a complaint about the way the CoL has managed your
enquiry, please make your complaint in writing to email address:
[email address]. For a link to the CoL's FOI complaints
procedure, please visit the following page:
[1]www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/Feedback, at the end of which is located the
FOI complaints procedure. If, having used the CoL's FOI Complaints
Procedure, you are still dissatisfied, you may request the Information
Commissioner to investigate. Please contact: Information Commissioner,
Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF. Telephone:
(01625) 545700. Website: [2]http://www.ico.gov.uk/.

The FOIA applies to the CoL as a local authority, police authority and
port health authority. Subject to any other statutory provisions requiring
the City of London to disclose information, release of information outside
the scope of the Act is subject to the discretion of the City of London.

The CoL holds the copyright in this communication. Its supply does not
give a right to re-use in a way that would infringe that copyright, for
example, by making copies, publishing and issuing copies to the public or
to any other person. Brief extracts of any of the material may be
reproduced under the fair dealing provisions of the Copyright, Designs and
Patents Act 1988 (sections 29 and 30) for the purposes of research for
