Dear Enfield Council,

Can you publish a copy of the contract between you and them?

Can you tell me how much are they paid? Is that a flat fee or is it a commission?

Yours faithfully,

Dear Sir/Madam

CRM FOI 6515/ Film Office

 

Dear Mr Hai

 

Thank you for your email dated 14 August 2019 where you requested
information about the Film Office Contract.

 

Request

 

o Can you publish a copy of the contract between you and them?
o Can you tell me how much are they paid?
o Is that a flat fee or is it a commission?

 

Yours faithfully

Abdul Hai

 

I can confirm that the Council holds this information. This information is
exempt under section(s) under Section 43(1)(2) of the Freedom of
Information Act and is therefore being withheld.

 

We have withheld:

 

o a copy of the contract between Enfield Council and Film Office
o how much are they paid
o If they are paid a flat fee or commission

 

 

Under Section 43(1)(2) of the Freedom of Information Act. Under Section
43, information is exempt from disclosure as releasing it would, or would
be likely to prejudice the commercial interests of any person (including
the public authority holding it). In our view, disclosure of the contract,
rates and fees would be likely to undermine the Council’s ability to
negotiate favourable rates on behalf of residents and consequently weaken
their bargaining position in the market place.

Section 43 is a qualified exemption therefore we have to consider the
public interest in disclosure. We acknowledge that the public interest is
served by promoting transparency by public authorities for decisions taken
by them so that individuals can understand the basis of those decisions
and, in some cases, assisting individuals in challenging them. However, in
this instance, we consider that there is a greater public interest in
protecting the confidentiality of commercially sensitive information,
which could, if disclosed, damage companies’ commercial interests and
potentially undermine the Council’s ability to negotiate favourable rates
on behalf of residents. Therefore, we have decided that in this case the
public interest lies in favour of withholding the requested information.

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the
right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be
submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your
original letter and should be addressed to:

 

Complaints and Access to Information Team

Email – [1][Enfield Council request email]

 

Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future
communications.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information
Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9
5AF
