1. How many instances of the Microsoft Windows 7 Operating System are currently in operation across your entire network? How many devices such as kiosks, lap tops etc are still running Windows 7?

2. How many instances of the Microsoft Windows XP Operating System are currently in operation across your entire network ? How many devices such as kiosks, lap tops etc are still running Windows XP?

Thank you for your help.

Dear Mr Murray,

 

Thank you for your request for information regarding the above, which has
been passed to me for attention and reply. Please note that this
organisation does not respond to FOI requests, as the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (“the Act”) does not apply to us. This is because:

 

(1) neither York Minster nor the Minster’s governing body (the Chapter of
York) is a “public authority” as defined by Schedule 1 of the Act, and

 

(2) with reference to Schedule 1 Paragraph 64 of the Act, this is not an
organisation that “by virtue of any enactment has the function of
nominating individuals who may be appointed as Special Constables”. York
Minster’s Cathedral Constables are nominated for appointment on a common
law, not a statutory, basis.

 

“York Minster Police” is simply the name that we use for York Minster’s
in-house security team – it is not a police force, nor is it a part of the
national policing service. The police force that is responsible for the
investigation of all crime and for responding to all 101/999 Police calls
in all parts of the City of York is North Yorkshire Police.

 

The York Minster Police team is employed by the Chapter of York to provide
a security service within York Minster and property owned by Chapter in
the adjacent Minster Precinct – which it does by agreement with, and
subject to the primacy of, North Yorkshire Police. North Yorkshire Police
retains full statutory authority and responsibility for maintaining a
policing service throughout the whole of the City of York, including all
parts of the Minster Precinct.

 

I hope that this clarification is helpful to you.

 

Regards,

 

Andy Oates

Chapter Clerk
