Freedom of Information and Health and Safety

This blog is aimed at shaming those who ignore health and safety and those who abuse the Freedom of Information Act out of laziness, corruption or to cover up incompetence.

Denham was Canadian. Why can’t we use home-grown talent?

In April this year the Post Office refused a Freedom of Information Act request regarding the Post Office multi million £ fraud as being “vexatious”.

First Tier Tribunal

Under protection of the FOIA 2000 please provide me with details about Judge McKenna’s Suspension.

1. Date of Suspension.

2. Type of Suspension, eg Gardening leave.

3. Cause for Suspension

4. List of FOI Cases Judge McKenna has been in charge of for the last 3years.

5. List of all FTT (All facets) suspended in the last 5 years. In the event you think this is excessive, I will settle for 3 years.

Matt Warman MP

Dear Matt

I have taken the liberty in sending you some information ref Quality System Management (QSM), as I fervently believe the Tory Party Government are failing their duty of care to ensure  all Public Authorities comply with the QSM.

Organizations like the ICO, HMCTS, County Courts and Local Councils ,Hospitals, Police etc should be compliant with QSM.

I would be grateful if you would raise this matter with the Cabinet Office.

With thanks

Yours sincerely 

Alan M Dransfield.

Richard Bailey ICO Solicitor

Dear Sir

Please advise me the name and contact details for the ICO  Quality Management Systems Manager.

I will need this information for the  forthcoming FTT Tribunal hearing EA/2019/0227 Dr Kirkham/Dransfield v ICO.

As Legal Officer for the ICO, you will be aware the ICO have a duty of care to ensure they operate a Quality Management System. Hence, I wish to question the ICO QSM Manager on this and other cases. I will be seeking to question your QSM manager to demonstrate the procedures used to reach several decisions including the EA/2019/0227. There is a myriad of ICO Decisions which clearly reflects an arbitrary, unlawful decision as opposed to a Lawful Decision which has been reached by the application of a Quality System Management eg ISO9000/1.

I would also expect the ICO to demonstrate their bundle was compiled under a  QMS.eg ISO9000/1.

In the event the  ICO are unable to demonstrate this case has been the subject to QA/QC Process, I will be asking the First Tier Tribunal to strike out your legal argument as baseless and vexatious.

with thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield
