Dated: 31 Jul 2015
Date of request: 17/10/2012
Date of response: 06/11/2012
Thank you for your email dated 17 October 2012 in which you made a request for access to certain information which may be held by Northumbria Police.
I wish to make a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 regarding a meeting between the police from Northumberland Area Command and a representative from the Royal Society for Prevention of the Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) and a member of the League Against Cruel Sports (LACS). The meeting was about the hunts in the Northumberland area.
The above meeting took place recently and I would like to see any minutes of that meeting or notes taken. If none were taken then a summary of what was discussed.
Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with both the Operations Command and the Northumberland Area Command of Northumbria Police. I can confirm that the information you have requested is not held by Northumbria Police.
Northumbria Police have no record of a recent meeting taking place between the parties specified in your request.
You may be interested to know that Northumbria Police routinely publish information that has been disclosed by Northumbria Police in response to requests made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 via the Disclosure Log. The aim of the Disclosure Log is to promote openness and transparency by voluntarily placing information into the public arena.
Whilst it is not possible to publish all responses we will endeavour to publish those where we feel that the information disclosed is in the public interest. The Disclosure Log will be updated once responses have been sent to the requester. I have provided the relevant link below:-
