Blacklisting

We're waiting for Phil Collyer to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Metropolitan Police Service (MPS),

What recorded evidence do the MPS have that leads them to think that personal information of the public was passed on to "blacklisting" operation?
How many police were involved in passing this information on?
Were they all from Special Branch?
What has been done to these police to bring them to justice?
What internal sanctions were made against these police and what procedures did they go through?

Dear Mr Collyer

Freedom of Information Request Reference No: 2018030000854

I write in connection with your request for information which was received
by the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) on 23/03/2018.

Section 10(3) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FoIA) excludes a
public authority from the requirement to comply with section 1(1) (i.e.
the general right of access to information held by public authorities)
‘until such time as is reasonable in the circumstances’ if, and to the
extent that, section 1(1) would not apply due to the application of one or
more of the qualified exemptions listed in part II of the Act.

I note that you were advised by the MPS on 20/04/2018 that the MPS were
considering the public interest in relation to Section 30 (investigations
and proceedings) of the FOIA and that a further update was provided to you
on 23/05/2018 indicating that enquiries in relation to your request were
still ongoing.

There is no statutory time limit in relation to the length of time a
public authority may take to consider the public interest in relation to
the application of a qualified exemption. However, the Information
Commissioner’s Office has issued good practice guidance
(https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisatio...)
that indicates that the total time taken to respond to a request should
not exceed 40 working days except in exceptional circumstances.

The MPS has received several overlapping FOIA queries in relation to
blacklisting allegations and it is pertinent to note that the MPS are also
dealing with a number of related ongoing matters including disclosure
issues in relation to other proceedings such as the Undercover Policing
Inquiry.

At the time of writing, I anticipate that a redacted version of the MPS
report into these matters (the Operation Reuben report) will be provided
to you at some point next week.

To the extent that this report does not answer your queries, enquiries are
ongoing.

I will endeavour to provide you with a substantive response to your
request as soon as possible.

I would also like to take this opportunity to apologise for any
inconvenience caused by the delay in answering your request and thank you
for your patience.

Yours sincerely
