Taxi Licensing and Convictions

Timothy Lewis made this Freedom of Information request to Cardiff Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Cardiff Council,

[Potentially defamatory extraneous material removed]
[The removed material related to the subject of taxi licensing]

Under the Freedom of Information Act could I please request information as to how many other convicted criminals your council has provided access to the general public over the past ten years.

I feel that people of Cardiff deserve the right to know if they are playing Russian roulette whenever entering a Cardiff City Council awarded cab.

Yours faithfully,

T Lewis.

Dear Cardiff Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Cardiff Council's handling of my FOI request 'Taxi Licensing and Convictions'.

You have neither had the decency to reply to my request despite it being demanded by law.

I have also noticed a letter published by Media Wales from a certain private hire taxi driver who I suspect who's details would have been contained in your reply if you had truthfully done so.

This private hire Cardiff council awarded individual's details are available upon request.

[ I have noticed that a particular private hire award you have given has complained about your council in a letter published in Media Wales ]

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