Dear Freedom of Information,

Thank you for your response received on August 22nd 2016.

It is my understanding that information held at Companies House lists Volair Limited as having the following address:

VOLAIR LIMITED

MUNICIPAL BUILDINGS
KNOWSLEY METROPOLITAN BOROUGH COUNCIL
HUYTON
UNITED KINGDOM
L36 9UX
It is my understanding that this information is correct, as of August 8th 2016.

A sample email address to contact Volair Limited is: [email address] source: https://www.activeknowsley.com/ Accessed August 22 2016 at 19:39

Would you please clarify if Volair Limited utilises a Knowsley Metroplitan Borough Council (KMBC) building/office/address as the official Volair Limited business address.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Tully,

Thank you for your email of 22 August 2016.

Volair Limited was incorporated on 10 December 2015. The company number is 9910942. Details of its registration are already in the public domain and can be access via the Companies House links below.

http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk//wcfra...

https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/searc...

The information that you have requested has been published by Companies House and therefore, pursuant to the exemption under Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, there is no obligation on either the Council or Volair to provide this information to you. Nevertheless as Volair is a wholly owned company of the Council, the Council is happy to confirm that Volair's 'registered office' is the Municipal Building, Huyton as published by Companies House. The Council has been informed by Volair that it does intend to change its registered office and that the appropriate forms have been completed and submitted to Companies House.

Your sincerely,

Dear Freedom of Information,

I am writing regarding your response to request for information under reference F2016.08.2588., published on August 23rd 2016.

Thank you for the response. I am aware that information is already in the public domain, however, this information is only valid if it is lodged correctly at Companies House.

Therefore, I believe my initial request remains valid, as information held at Companies House may be lodged incorrectly.

I look forward to your response, and clarification, in due course.

Yours sincerely,

Wayne Tully

Dear Mr Tully

Thank you for your e mail dated 31 August 2016.

If information is not "lodged correctly" as you put it then it will be rejected by Companies House.

The Council is therefore satisfied that the information at Companies House is correct and would refer you again to our response to your original request.

Yours sincerely

Dear Freedom of Information,

Thank you for your e mail dated 31 August 2016.

Your response is as follows:

'If information is not "lodged correctly" as you put it then it will be rejected by Companies House.
The Council is therefore satisfied that the information at Companies House is correct and would refer you again to our response to your original request.'

I, as an individual, am fully aware that if information is not lodged correctly at Companies House it will be rejected. This is completely different to the possibility that incorrect information was supplied in the first instance to Companies House who would be unaware of an erroneous entry*.

I, again, refer you to my original request.

* I am not suggesting or implying that any individual or entity has deliberately attempted to place false information on public record.

Yours sincerely,

Wayne Tully

The address pertaining to Volair Limited, as registered at Companies House, is as follows:

Municipal Buildings, Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council, Huyton, United Kingdom, L36 9UX

It is to be assumed that personnel are "satisfied that the information at Companies House is correct", despite the above-mentioned address being identified as being incorrect.

Dear Mr Tully,

The Council is satisfied that the information at Companies House is correct unless you have evidence that this information is actually incorrect and would refer you again to our response to your original request as we have nothing further to add.

Dear Freedom of Information,

Thank you for your response, published on September 1st 2016.

Why I would "have any evidence to the contrary" in relation to any Executive Members of Volair Limited current occupations, as listed at Companies House? I am basing my information purely on that which is published as a public record, unless you are able to advise myself "to the contrary."

I wish to refer you back to the initial Freedom of Information request, which was submitted on August 8th 2016:

Please advise the following:

Do any Executive Directors, of Volair, have a professional background in the leisure industry?
Do any Executive Directors, of Volair, have any qualifications pertaining to the leisure industry?

The questions are quite clear in what information is being requested. Therefore I, once again, ask that the Freedom of Information request be answered, within the pre-requisite timeframes of the legislation upon which the request has been made.

Yours sincerely,

Wayne Tully
