Guinness World Records
The Environment Agency have transparently fouled up their second try at determining the water licence*(1) at Avoncliff and again they have hugely exceeded the statutory time limit for doing their job.... and... when we asked them what was going on - The EA have asked for £37,500 to fulfil their obligations under the Freedom of Information Act - which it has to be said is couched in some truly classic "Yes Minister" language
Bear in mind that the EA have some history here and we previously paid £1000 to have pivotal legal information hidden from us and were lied to for 18 months before the EA were carpeted by the Information Commissioner and our FoI fee was refunded.... and the sordid, unacceptable truth came out.
We are entering The Environment Agency into a number of new categories over at The Guinness World Records. (Officially Amazing™) - That is - f they actually accept our applications for several new categories of records...
Does The Environment Agency have something to hide related to water licences at Avoncliff?
We have a request for £37,500 that shouts - abso-lutely!
Sir Humphrey Appleby would be positively beaming with pride
(1) According to the Judicial Review Consent Order there is only one scheme viable at Avoncliff - the EA signed up to be bound by this but they are now soliciting what looks likely too be 4 or more licences - really - what is going on?
