White warning lights on emergency vehicles

The request was successful.

Dear London Ambulance Service NHS Trust,
I am enquiring as to what exemption this Trust has for the use of flashing/alternating white warning lights on your emergency vehicles (not the flashing/alternating headlamps) but specifically the lights used in the front grille's and lightbar's which fall under the remit of the Road Vehicle Lighting Regulations.

I await your reply in due course.

Yours faithfully,

Gavin Webb

Dear London Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of London Ambulance Service NHS Trust's handling of my FOI request 'White warning lights on emergency vehicles'.

By law, public authorities must respond promptly to requests, in nearly all cases they must respond within 20 working days, this has clearly not been the case with my request.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/w...

Yours faithfully,

Gavin Webb

Dear Mr Webb,

 

I have just checked for your request and for some reason this was not
recorded when received by us on 27th February. I can only apologise for
this oversight as it is the first time this has happened since our team
took over the administration of FoI requests received by the London
Ambulance Service in 2011.

 

We will endeavour to resource a response to your request as soon as
possible.

 

Once again please accept my apologies. We will be in touch shortly.

 

Regards
