Strategic Risk Register June 2017

We're waiting for Stuart Maskery to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Children and Family Court Advisory Support Service,

Under the Freedom of Information Act and the general principles of the "right to know" I request copies of the Strategic Risk Register presented to the Board at the Open Board Meeting on the 15th June 2017

I am aware that this has been redacted on the Grounds of an S36 exemption under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and your organisation has in the past quoted Section 36,2,B,ii as the reasons for non disclosure of the Strategic Risk Register however given that this this information was presented at an "open" meeting I therefore request copies on the grounds that this information has already been disclosed in a public forum and the S36 exemption for non disclosure no longer applies in this case.

Yours faithfully,

Stuart Maskery

Dear Children and Family Court Advisory Support Service,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Children and Family Court Advisory Support Service's handling of my FOI request 'Strategic Risk Register June 2017'. as the Board Minutes supplied to me under request CAF 17-178 available at https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/b... clearly show that a list of external guests were present at the meeting and privy to this documentation and therefore as it has already been disclosed as per my original request i submit that the S36 exemption should not be applied in this case.

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,

Stuart Maskery

Dear Mr Maskery,

 

Thank you for your email which let us know that you were unhappy with the
decision made in the FOI response CAF18-006 below and requested a review
of the decision.

 

This email serves to acknowledge that your request was received on 25
January 2018 and will be dealt with under the terms of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.

 

A Senior Officer who was not party to the original decision on whether to
release the information will conduct the internal review. An internal
review involves a review of the decision on disclosure in the original
response and the way in which the request was handled. The internal
reviewer can either uphold or overturn the original decision.

 

Cafcass will notify you as to the final decision made regarding your
internal review 20 working days from receipt of your request. You will
therefore receive a response on or before 21 February 2018.

 

Kind regards,

Dear Mr Maskery,

 

The Information Commissioner has written to Cafcass in connection with
your request (CAF18-006) under the Freedom of Information Act 2000  (the
Act) for disclosure of the Strategic Risk register for Cafcass in 2017.

 

Your original request was declined on the basis that it was exempt from
disclosure under section 36 (36(2) (b) (ii) of the Act and that decision
was upheld in a review of the original response.

 

Cafcass understands that you have now submitted a complaint to the
Information Commissioners Office (ICO) and as a result we have reviewed
the original decision.

 

Your request asserted that the Risk register had been shared in a public
forum; the Open Board meeting of Cafcass on 12 June 2017 and it was on
this basis that you were seeking its disclosure. In fact the Register was
not shared with the attendees of that meeting but a summary was provided,
as was explained to you previously. However having reconsidered the
response Cafcass has concluded that the exemption applied does not
strictly apply and has therefore decided to disclose a copy of the
Strategic Risk Register which is attached.

 

The ICO has been informed that Cafcass has reviewed and overruled its
previous decision in regards to your request. The ICO has requested we
issue them with a copy of our correspondence to you and we will issue them
with a copy of this email.

 

Kind regards,
