Motor Claims (12683/19)
Motor Uninsured Loss Claims
We shall be pleased if you will advise us the value of claims pursued against third parties and the amounts recovered for the following period:-
01/01/17 – 31/12/17
Please be advised that the specific information you have requested is not available in a readily retrievable format. Figures relating to the value of claims pursued against third parties are not centrally recorded and would therefore require us to conduct a manual review of each individual record to identify these.
This means that the cost of providing you with the information is above the amount to which we are legally required to respond i.e. the cost of locating and retrieving the information exceeds the ‘appropriate level’ as stated in the Freedom of Information (Fees and Appropriate Limit) Regulations 2004.
In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, this letter acts as a Refusal Notice for this part of the request and if one part of a request exceeds the fees limit then Section 12 of the Act applies to the whole request.
However, in accordance with Section 16 of the Act I have a duty to provide advice and assistance in relation to your request and can provide the information requested for the amounts recovered as this was retrieved during our initial search. Please find this below.
The value of claims recovered against third parties for the following period:-
01/01/17 – 31/12/17 = £369,822.52
These data should be interpreted with caution; the figures provided are our best interpretation of relevance of data to your request, but you should be aware that the collation of figures for ad hoc requests may have limitations and this should be taken into account when those data are used.
This should not be taken as a precedent that additional information would be supplied outside of the time/fees legislation for any subsequent requests.
