Public Area Within The Job Center Plus Buildings.

Waiting for an internal review by Department for Work and Pensions of their handling of this request.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Can you please send me the document, or act of parliament, or any other document that gives any powers that are greater than my own, to a private security company in a 'Public Area' within the DWP buildings. Also...The licence or any document/agreement from my employe ( UK Government ) that gives a private security guard permission to view any CCTV taken in a public area by governmental/police video cameras that I pay for.......
It is my understanding that the law states anybody is entitled to video in a public area as nobody has the power to stop them. Can you please confirm this....or please send me the authorisation document that says a private security company has more powers than I on this matter.

I have every faith you can provide me with this information.

John Logan.
Yours faithfully,

John Logan

Dear DWP CAXTON HOUSE Commercial Directorate Correspondence,

Am I missing something in your reply. Does the DWP work for me....and is it not from the public purse they are paid. Or are you telling me they have no accountability and that they have more power than me. You stated that the DWP invites the public into 'it's' building. Please clarify the word 'It's' as if they do still work for me....then the word 'it's' means it is also my building and even if It is managed by a private company.....I still rent it and have full access to public areas.
Yours sincerely,

John Logan

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Department for Work and Pensions's handling of my FOI request 'Public Area Within The Job Center Plus Buildings.'.

[ GIVE DETAILS ABOUT YOUR COMPLAINT HERE ] The law on public areas are very clear. Anybody can record in a public area as no agent from the government has any powers to stop them. I do not except the answer I have received as no person can be refuted access from a public area where a governments office is unless a law has been broken. If my understanding is wrong, then my power within law has become less than my government. This would allow tyranny....

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/p...

Yours faithfully,

John Logan

"It would, therefore, be a breach of DWP’s legal obligations under the Data Protection Act to permit such filming."

Is it not a breach of the Act that the DWP conducts its business in such a way that allows jobcentre visitors to easily listen to the conversations of claimants?

Dear DWP freedom-of-information-requests,

Where is the outcome of my internal review request.

Yours sincerely,

John Logan

The matters raised can be taken up by the Information Commissioner by complaining to them, who can be
asked to address FOI and Data Protection issues raised, as they regulate both areas.
