Intelligence and Security Committee

A security services body, also called ISC

The Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) was established by the Intelligence Services Act 1994 to examine the policy, administration and expenditure of the Security Service, Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), and the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ).[1]

The ISC is not subject to FOI but is included on this site because its public responsibilities.

The Intelligence and Security Committee has refused to provide a working email address by which people may send environmental information requests, or requests for other recorded information. However our servers show that emails to the address we we are using are successfully received by their server (which responds with message "250 OK" and are subsequently read by a member of staff (we receive read receipts), even though they have an auto-response set up to instruct people to use their website contact form.

They commented on 15th July that they are resistant to the publication of their email address due to previous spam problems. "Please note that even though we are not under a duty to respond to requests for information made under the FOI regime, we do nonetheless respond to the public correspondence which we receive either via our webform or by letter."

You can only request information about the environment from this authority.
