Freedom of Information request (FOI-2593)
Dear Sir or Madam
Please find attached a request under the Freedom of Information Act. You
kindly answered a request in September 2018 regarding a specific aspect of
the Care Act; I am now asking about overall costs of implementation. There
may be a small amount of overlap in the information relating to both
requests but I anticipate this second request will be more conducive to my
I appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
Thank you for your request of 8th February 2019.
You asked the following:
Up to the present day, what have been the council’s costs regarding implementation of the Care Act?
Please provide information broken down annually, starting in 2013/14 to the present day. I appreciate there may be constraints within the context of the Freedom of Information Act but where possible state:
a) The relevant project or strand of the Care Act (e.g. work on assessing and shaping the local care market) and
b) Type of expenditure (e.g. event to engage with local providers).
Note: this should include costs for policies which may have later been postponed or cancelled e.g. cap on lifetime care costs.
Below is the response to your question:
We do not record the implementation costs of the Care Act and cannot provide the information you have requested.
If you are dissatisfied with this response and wish to appeal, please write to the Information Management Team by email [email protected] and this will be dealt with through our Internal Review procedure
If you are still not satisfied following the Internal Review, you have a right to appeal to the Information Commissioner.
