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

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

ISCA College

Dear Alison

Thank you for your email confirming you do not
hold any As Built Health and Safety Files (ABHSF)on your premises. It would
automatically follow the school is operating in a legal void and your public
liability insurance could be evoked in the event of a fatal accident at the ISCA
College. It is a mandatory requirement to keep a copy of the ABHSF at the ISCA

I have asked Mr Ben Bradshaw to intervene on this matter.


Yours sincerely
