westminster today have come back and refused to give the freedom of information act documents as they say that it can be used to make fraudulent public claims against the council!rnrnalthough it is within reason to ask for it, public interest in avoiding fraudulent payouts ways heavily over the fact that public information is needed.rnrnthis info constitues a refusal notice in accordance with section 17 of the act...rnrnnow what? do they have something to hide?
What happened after your incident is largely irrelevant and I would suggest that you don't want the fact that you did not report the pothole for 3 weeks to become an issue as a Court is likely to conclude that it wasn't very civic minded of you.rnrnYou will not know your chances of success until you have information about inspections and reports before your incident.
