Dear Her Majesty’s Courts and the Tribunals Service,
who are the magistrates contracted to during a council tax hearing and a warrant of entry hearing? How does anyone have a fair trial with big lists submissions?

Thank you for your e-mail below, I am writing to advise you that your
enquiry does not fall under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA)
regime and has been rejected by the Disclosure Team.
It may be helpful if I explain that the FOIA gives individuals and
organisations the right of access to all types of recorded information
held, at the time the request is received, by public authorities such as
the Ministry of Justice (MoJ). Section 84 of the FOIA states that in order
for a request for information to be handled as a FOI request, it must be
for recorded information. For example, a FOI request would be for a copy
of a policy, rather than an explanation as to why we have that policy in
place. On occasion, the MoJ receives requests that do not ask for recorded
information, but ask more general questions about, for example, a policy,
opinion or a decision.
You may wish to re-submit your enquiry to the Ministry of Justice, which
will be treated as Official Correspondence. Our contact details are as
102 Petty France
