Dear Freedom Of Information,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.
I am writing to request an internal review of Pembrokeshire Council's handling of my FOI request 'Serious case reviews/child death inquiries – Pembrokewhisre'.

Thank you for your response which is disappointing as far as disclosure of the requested information viz Serious Case Reviews [SCR’s] is concerned.

Nevertheless I am pleased at the most open response received compared to other nearby local councils within the Mid Wales LSCB/CYSUR.

It is concerning that full overview SCR’s are not publicly available [even in anonymised format].
I note that no overview reports [only summary] are disclosed and no SCR’s [summary and/or overview] since January 2014 after establishment of the Mid Wales LSCB/CYSUR are included in the information disclosure and should be obliged if you would conduct an internal review not least to establish that;

1. such information can be withheld from public scrutiny [including scrutiny by Council Members acting for their constituents or as Corporate Parents];

2. information [SCR’s] is only published by the selection or the discretion of non-public authorities, such as the Mid Wales LCSB/CYSUR which is/are nevertheless publicly/taxpayer funded, as to what information should be disclosed.

3. The SCR’s are reliant on information being provided to a Safeguarding Board eg the Mid Wales LCSB/CYSUR by the local authority and other agency services which may or may not be withheld from the Report writer.

4. The terms of reference for the SCR are drawn up by the agency services possibly limiting the probative and outcome value of any SCR.

Thank you in advance of your response/review.

Yours sincerely,

dai pugh

Dear Freedom Of Information,

Thanks for your response and information.

Whilst I received a great deal of the information requested it appears the scope is limited by law.

Nevertheless, the amount of information supplied has been commendable as well as the making of information publicly available on your website. This comment is based, however, on comparison with other local authorities [including neighbour authorities] who appear to have a less informative and less transparent approach which I am sure is not conducive to child protection and to the continuous improvement of children's and child protection services.

Yours sincerely,

dai pugh

Pembrokeshire website appears to have been changed (August 2017) and the links provided in the response no longer work, see https://www.pembrokeshire.gov.uk/safegua...

Yes looks like PemCC has been brought into line with the others. It was the only Council to publish its SCR's.

Child Protection appears to be in the process of being screened [in Wales] in secrecy. Is this to protect the pseudo professionals or the children?
