Dear Brent Borough Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Brent Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Risk Assessments for Wembley Football Cup Finals'.

I note that you have not confirmed or denied whether the authority holds this information,
as you stated "...Risk assessments relating to Football Cup Finals are undertaken by the event organisers and the information is not the property of the Council.", however in order to help facilitate the Stadium Organisers, they would have to issue the Council with some sort of information. If it's not a "risk assessmemt" per se (although this may likely be negligent) then the alternative is being requested in this respect. Please provide copies of this information, however it is titled.
If this information does not exist then how do Brent Council plan and prepare for such events? Please provide this information.

This information would include attendance, parking, police, catering, tv broadcasters etc along with potential evacuation plans.

Additionally, your response did not state that have applied any exemption that would remove this obligation.

As you may be aware, Section 1(1) of the FOI Act (https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/200...) states that "Any person making a request for information to a public authority is entitled to be informed in writing by the public authority whether it holds information of the description specified in the request".
I would be grateful if you could clarify whether or not this information is held, or specify which exemption of the duty to confirm or deny you are applying.

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

Yours faithfully,

Tatt J
