Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 21 January 2022.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
How many babies have been born with physical defects over the past 10-years broken down month by month, this should include but not exclusively, black eyes, stumped/missing fingers and or toes?
The information requested is not available centrally and it is estimated that to extract any relevant data from individual patients’ records would exceed the cost limit provisions set out in the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014. Article 16 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has therefore been applied.
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.
