Dear Mr McCutcheon,

 

Freedom of Information Act 2000 - Request for Information

 

I am writing in respect of your recent enquiry for information held by the
Authority under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act.

 

Under the Act (Section 12) the Authority has the right to refuse to
release the information where it is reasonably estimated that the cost of
complying with a request would exceed £450 (calculated on the basis of 18
hours @ £25 per hour).  On this occasion we have estimated (please see the
following paragraph) that the cost of determining whether we hold the
requested information and locating, retrieving and extracting it would
exceed £450.  The Authority has therefore decided to refuse your request.

 

Please note that the data you are asking for is not held by the Council in
a central record. In order for us to obtain the information, a manual
check would need to be made of around 5000 individuals’ records. We
estimate that this would take approximately 1 minutes for each record.
 This would therefore take approximately 83 hours to undertake.

 

If you are not satisfied with the way the Authority has handled your
request, you may ask for an internal review. Please contact me either on
the number below or in writing: Senior Information Governance Officer
Corporate Information Governance Team, County Hall, Wakefield, West
Yorkshire WF1 2QW (marked Private & Confidential) or e-mail on
[Wakefield City Council request email] and I will arrange an internal
review of your case.

 

Yours sincerely
