Hertfordshire County Council
16 May 2016, Local government (County council)
The complainant has requested recorded information which concerns an on-going claim against the Hertfordshire County Council (“the Council”). The Council has endeavoured to provide the complainant with answers to many of the questions he has raised, and in many instances it has satisfied the complainant’s information requirements. There are however a number of instances where the Council has failed to provide the complainant with copies of the recorded information it holds, particularly in relation to parts (e) to (h) of the complainant’s request of 12 January 2015. In respect of those parts of the complainant’s request, the Commissioner has decided that the Council has breached section 1 of the FOIA. The Commissioner requires the public authority to revisit parts (e) to (h) of the complainant’s request and provide a fresh response that complies with the Act.
