Dear Mr Jones,

Thank you for your email dated 28th January 2010.

If a requestor is dissatisfied with the way in which a request for
information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 has been handled
they can request an internal review be conducted.

Please can you confirm if you would like me to conduct such a review and
also state clearly your grounds for wanting such a review to be carried
out.

If you wish to request of copy of information which we hold about yourself
and our dealings with you regarding your freedom of information request,
such a request would fall under the Data Protection Act 1998. The Data
Protection Act, provides individuals with the right to request information
which identifies themselves as living individuals. This Act allows us to
charge a £10 fee, which can be made payable to the City Council either by
cheque or postal order.

Please confirm to myself which of the above you would like us to progress.

Dear Louise Kelly,

I confirm I am requesting an internal review.

I am not requesting personal data of a nature that is covered by
the Data Protection Act. I am asking for copies of information held
by yourselves in relation to a rejected FoI request.

Dear Trevor,

I have now considered your request asking for information held by ourselves in relation to a rejected FoI request.

I can confirm that in order to locate the data that you have requested about a rejected foi request, this will require us to identify personal data relating to yourself.

As personal data about yourself will be identified in order for us to locate the information you have requested, therefore this falls under the Data Protection Act and will require a £10 fee.

If you wish to continue with this request for personal data please send this in writing to [email address]

On a further note, I have already carried out an internal review about the handling of your freedom of information requests-aggregated (our ref foi/1603/2009) and I upheld our original decision. If you are still unhappy about the decision made you can ask for a decision from the Information Commissioner.

The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: The Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House,
Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require any assistance with this email.

Yours sincerely

Louise Kelly
