Glasgow, FOI and Equal Pay

Here's an FoI request I submitted to Glasgow City Council a little while back asking for the minutes of GCC's Corporate Management Team.

Tune in again tomorrow to read all about the City Council's response which make senior officials look quite ridiculous if you ask me. 

We are still a long way from culture of 'openness and transparency' when it comes to the City Council's WPBR pay arrangements.


Annemarie O'Donnell
Chief Executive
Glasgow City Council

Dear Ms O'Donnell

FOISA Request
I would like to make the following request under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. 
  1. Please provide me with the minutes of Glasgow City Council's Corporate Management Team (CMT) for the period between December 2006 and December 2016. 
  2. I suspect these minutes may well be available online, as they are routinely in other Scottish councils, in which case I would be happy for Glasgow City Council to provide me with an appropriate internet link/s so that I can peruse the relevant documents for myself.
  3. If there are any issues about inspecting the minutes online, please explain how I can access and peruse 'hard copies' of these documents from within the City Council's archives.
In any event, I look forward to your reply and would be grateful if you could respond to me by e-mail at: markirvine@compuserve.com

Kind regards

Mark Irvine
