I am hugely grateful to Cornwall councillor Jeremy Rowe for offering to pursue my Freedom of Information request about second home voters.

Cornwall Council's chief executive, Kevin Lavery, has said he has no obligation to answer my questions because he does his job as Cornwall's senior election official in a "personal capacity" and is therefore not subject to FoI laws. The same cannot be said for his job as the most senior official working for Cornwall Council's Electoral Review Panel.

By making this issue part of Cornwall Council's official business, Jeremy might just have found a way to cut through the red tape.
