The Council"s Response
The property in question is not a London Borough of Hackney property. We have consulted with our Building Control department and they have confirmed that this type of inspection/ reporting would fall under HSE and Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and 2015. We therefore believe that London Borough of Hackney does not hold this information, and that you should direct your request to the Health and Safety Executive. There is information about how to do this on this page: http://www.hse.gov.uk/foi/index.htm
