Dear Mr Jones,

Further to your request for an internal review I am writing to inform you that you do not have the right to request an internal review at this stage in the proceedings because under the terms of the Act we have not failed to comply with its requirements.

I can fully appreciate that you have been misled in this instance by the Company's auto email that states that enquiries will be responded to within 7 working days, but you haven't made a general enquiry, you have lodged a Freedom of Information Request for which we have 20 working days in which to consider your request and respond to you. This gives us until the 20th March.

We are currently considering your request and will respond within the required timescale. I suspect the whatdotheyknow website will have all the information on it somewhere which explains all this.

Yours faithfully on behalf of Blackpool Transport Services Ltd.

Bryan Lindop

Dear Mr Stevens,

 

Further to your recent Freedom of Information Act request, I am now
writing to inform you that full consideration has been given to the
various elements requested in your email.

 

1.      Under the terms of the FOI Act, we are exempt from answering the
first part of your question relating to our accounts because this
information is annually provided to and publically available from
Companies House. Their address is: Companies House, Crown Way, Maindy,
Cardiff, CF14 3UZ.

2.      We respectfully decline to answer your question relating to
management salaries on the grounds of commercial sensitivity. If
disclosed, this information could give our commercial competitors an
unfair advantage. However, some very senior management posts have been
advertised in recent years with salary range stated and copies of recent
advertisements may possibly be obtainable from Blackpool Council. We do
not routinely retain copies of external advertisements in our records.

3.      Rates of pay for customer facing staff are usually routinely
advertised and so this information is not commercially sensitive. We are
happy to  provide pay rates for drivers and conductors from 2012 and these
can be found in the attached spreadsheet.

4.      We provide an annual profit share, but this is not paid to all
staff, only those that have a qualifying level of service. For
completeness, this information is also included in the attached
spreadsheet.

 

I trust that the information provided is of assistance to you.

 

Yours faithfully on behalf of Blackpool Transport Services Ltd.

 

Bryan Lindop
