Dear Ceredigion Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Ceredigion Council's handling of my FOI request 'Serious case reviews/child death inquiries – Ceredigion'.

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

It is disturbing that SCR’s are not publicly available [even in anonymised format] and I note that Haringey Council in a response to a Robin Smith [Ref: 144095] dated 01.02.2013 disclosed three SCR’s plus an Executive Summary following a request going back to 01.01.1975.

In addition in a similar request to Pembrokeshire Council [01.04.2017/ref 638015] some material was disclosed or where it could be accessed [via website]. Pembrokeshire are a party to the Mid Wales LSCB/CYSUR?

I should be obliged if you would conduct a 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.

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

Yours faithfully,
