Dear Adrian Hobbs,

Thank you for your response confirming that you hold the report.
I am confused as to why you state it is reference only. I am asking you to release it under the FOI Acts, and as such could you scan it and release it.

Kind regards,

Cathy Fox

Adrian Hobbs, Brent Safeguarding Children Board

Brent Council - INFORMATION REQUEST

Our Reference: 1713836
====================================================

Dear Cathy

I am writing in response to your email yesterday to Adrian Hobbs.  Becuase
you expressed dissatisfaction with our response to your request we are
dealing with your email as a request for Internal Review.

Having looked at your request I have determined that the response sent
to you was inadequate in that in failed to cite a valid exemption as to
why a copy of the information held by Brent Council was not provided. 
Your complaint is therefore upheld.

The information you seek has been published and is already resonably
accessible to you otherwise than from the Council.  For example copies are
available for purchase on commercial websites that trade in such articles.

The information you requested is therefore exempt from disclosure in
accordance with Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to appeal directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted as follows:

Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow,
Cheshire SK9 5AF; Telephone: 01625 545 700,
www.informationcommissioner.gov.uk

Yours sincerely,

Stephen Williams,
Brent ITU
