It beggars belief

Justice Select Committee

Dear Sirs

Please see the latest FOI decision from the Devon County Council (DCC) which supports my claims the DCC are knowing and willfully breaching the FOIA 2000 by sending out such FOIA/EIR decisions.

This particular school is the subject to a £7million pound high court claim, hence, passes the public interest test. It therefore beggars belief the DCC can attempt to rely on EIR Regs 12(4)(b) manifestly unreasonable.

The DCC claim context and history of my FOIA requests being Health & Safety. However, this is a brand new request, and hence cannot be context and history.

They also rely upon "The Burden of Compliance" which is neither section 14(1) of the FOIA or section 12 of the EIR. If they wish to rely on a cost exemption they should apply the proper exemption.

This attached letter from the DCC is a tool to assist the passage of fraud and Deception by the DCC.

Please add this letter from the DCC to my list of complaints against the ICO & DCC.

For your information, action and files

With thanks

Yours etc

Alan M Dransfield
