Dear Vale of Glamorgan Council,

It will never be possible for local authorities to protect children from abuse until their child protection polices are evidence based but there is no legislation or regulations which specifically requires local authorities to collect & hold information on child abuse perpetrators or for them to use that information to formulate their child protection policies. Nor is this information available for Government to use that information to formulate their child protection policies.

Best regards Dave

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request received on 28th
December.

Your request has been forwarded to the relevant Officer and I can advise
on this occasion we cannot supply the information you have requested.

The information is exempt under section 12 of the Freedom of Information
Act 2000, which applies an exemption to information if the cost of
complying would exceed the 'appropriate limit' prescribed in the Fees
Regulation. This exemption applies because the data requested is not
readily available and would involve a manual search exceeding 18 hours.

Therefore in accordance with section 17 of the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 this letter acts as a Refusal Notice.

However please note that data on Child Protection Registration is
published annually and is available on the Welsh Government website.

Kind regards

Freedom of Information Unit
