Dear Mr Ng,

 

Thank you for your e-mail of 9 November, in which you ask for information
on the policy documents provided to Examiner Quality Consultants.  Your
request is being handled as a request for information under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.

 

We are considering your request.  Although the Act carries a presumption
in favour of disclosure, it provides exemptions which may be used to
withhold information in specified circumstances.  Some of these
exemptions, referred to as ‘qualified exemptions’, are subject to a public
interest test.  This test is used to balance the public interest in
disclosure against the public interest in favour of withholding the
information. The Act allows us to exceed the 20 working day response
target where we need to consider the public interest test fully. 

 

The information which you have requested is being considered under the
exemption in section 31 of the Act, which relate to law enforcement. This
is a qualified exemption and to consider the public interest test fully we
need to extend the 20 working day response period. We now aim to let you
have a full response by 8 January.

                                                                     

Yours sincerely

 

 

Her Majesty's Passport Office.
