Dear Carmichael, David,

Thank you for your reply.
To my understanding, Priority Debt is a term that indicates a more 'severe' sort of debt for which greater consequences exist when one fails to pay these, than with other sorts of debt.
Therefore, to clarify my request for information: please provide me with a) the number of people convicted for failure to debt; b) number of people serving custodial sentences for failure to pay priority debt.

These debts can be:

- Mortgage repayments and loans secured on one's home
- Rent
- Gas and electricity debts
- Council tax
- Guarantor loans and logbook loans;
- Gas and electricity bills;
- Child support and maintenance payments;
- Income tax, VAT and other tax debts;
- TV licence payments;
- Magistrates Court fines and penalty fines such as parking; and certain payments ordered by the courts.
- Child support and maintenance payments

However, if you have knowledge about other kinds of debts for which one can be convicted by court and/or serve custodial sentences when one fails to pay for these, than please include information on this as well.

Yours sincerely,

J. van Herk

Dear Ministry of Justice,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Ministry of Justice's handling of my FOI request 'Custodial Sentences for Priority Debt'.

Given that you have asked for clarification of my understanding of priority debts. In my response, I advised that the term priority debt indicated more severe debt. I would expect you to as the Ministry of justice, to have a working knowledge of the type of debts for which - in case of where one fails to pay - one can be prosecuted.

I stated “these debts could be” and I also asked for your advise. You have failed to provide adequate advise to endure that the scope of the request could be narrowed to fall under the £600 cost limit and as such request an independent internal review to identify the narrower scope of the request to ensure your body abides by good governance in fulfilling your duty to provide an adequate service to allow individuals to obtain information they have requested.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...

Yours faithfully,

J. van Herk
