Dear Insolvency Service,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Insolvency Service's handling of my FOI request 'Cost of proccedings 2021'.

This is because legal experts familiar with the case and the service's rules surrounding the publications of legal costs have told me:

“If the Insolvency Service wins directors’ disqualification proceedings it is entitled for its costs to be paid by the ‘losing’ director, at which point those costs are published in court and an assessment is made as to their reasonableness.

“Consequently, there is no hard and fast rule of principle that the Insolvency Service never publishes what it spends in legal costs.”

In addition, n order to apply section 43(2), you must be able to show that the disclosure of the information would, or would be likely to, prejudice or harm your commercial interests, or those of an individual, a company or any other legal entity. In conducting this test, you need to identify what the harm is and why it may occur as a result of disclosure.

The service has not shown this in its initial response.
