There are about 300 PSV taxi plates currently in issue and we estimate that it will take us in excess of the 12.5 working hours allowed for Freedom of Information responses in accordance with Regulation 2 (1) of the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014 to extract the relevant information from the individual records.
If we were able to collate the details within 12.5 hours the information would be exempt under Article 25 (Personal Information) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 as this could lead to the identification of the individuals concerned.
Article 16 A scheduled public authority may refuse to supply information if cost excessive
(1) A scheduled public authority that has been requested to supply information may refuse to supply the information if it estimates that the cost of doing so would exceed an amount determined in the manner prescribed by Regulations.
Regulation 2 (1) of the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014 allows an authority to refuse a request for information where the estimated cost of dealing with the request would exceed the specified amount of the cost limit of £500. This is the estimated cost of one person spending 12.5 working hours in determining whether the department holds the information, locating, retrieving and extracting the information.
