Dear Alex Beard,

Freedom of Information request F19-582

Thank you for your request for information dated 21 November 2019,
received by us on the same date, which is copied below.

When a General Election is called, Parliament is dissolved and there is no
‘House of Commons’ for the purposes of the Freedom of Information 2000 Act
(FOIA). As a result, there is no public authority to which the 20-working
day response deadline can apply. The time limits are therefore suspended
during the period of dissolution and resume when the House of Commons
first meets following the General Election.

As your request was received during the dissolution period, the 20-working
day time limit will commence when the House returns after the General
Election, which will be a date – yet to be agreed – sometime after the
Election itself.

Further information about the FOIA and Dissolution can be found on our web
pages here:
[1]http://www.parliament.uk/site-informatio...
.

In the meantime, if you have any queries about your request, please
contact us quoting the request number above and in the subject line of
this email.

Yours sincerely,

From: Alex Beard <[FOI #622360 email]>

Dear Alex Beard,

Freedom of Information Request F19-582

Thank you for your request for information as copied below. You have asked
the House of Commons for information concerning five events held on the
parliamentary estate between 2017 and 2019.

This information is held by the House of Commons. The House holds booking
information and related correspondence for these events. Please find
attached all information held by the House regarding these events.

Some personal data (the names of operational staff) has been redacted from
this material. This information is exempt by virtue of section 40 (2) of
the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA), as disclosure of this
information to the public generally, in the House’s view, would not be
consistent with data protection principles in Article 5 of the General
Data Protection Regulation. This is an absolute exemption and the public
interest test does not apply.

You may, if dissatisfied with the handling of your request, complain to
the House of Commons. Alternatively, if you are dissatisfied with the
outcome of your request you may ask the House of Commons to conduct an
internal review of any decision regarding your request.  Complaints or
requests for internal review should be addressed to: Information Rights
and Information Security Service, Research & Information Team, House of
Commons, London SW1A 0AA or [1][House of Commons request email].  Please
ensure that you specify the full reasons for your complaint or internal
review along with any arguments or points that you wish to make.

If you remain dissatisfied, you may appeal to the Information Commissioner
at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF,
[2]www.ico.gov.uk.

Yours sincerely,

IRIS Officer
