Dear Mr Pearson,
 
FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 (FOIA) – REQUEST FOR INFORMATION
 
The City of London (CoL) acknowledges receipt of your request for
information of 10 January 2019.
 
Public authorities are required to respond to requests within the
statutory timescale of 20 working days beginning from the first working
day after they receive a request. The Act does not always require public
authorities to disclose the information which they hold.
 
The FOIA applies to the CoL as a local authority, police authority and
port health authority. The CoL is the local and police authority for the
“Square Mile”, ie the historic City of London, and not for London as a
whole. Please see the following page containing a link to a map (‘Explore
the City’), which shows the local authority area covered by the CoL:

The CoL does have some functions, including Port Health Authority
functions, which extend beyond the City boundary. For further information

Yours sincerely,
