I would like a list of landlords to whom my council pays

Resolved Question:

I would like a list of landlords to whom my council pays benefit directly. They have replied that this is personal information covered by Data Protection. However, I know of at least one person who has received this information from another council. I would like to know whether or not this information is in the public domain and should be given to me.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.

The Council are correct. This is covered under the Data Protection Act, UNLESS the Landlord(s) give consent

If they give consent the list can be published.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
