Dear General Register Office,

Please provide the following information:

(1) A copy of the form used to report a suspicious marriage to the Secretary of State under s.24 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

(2) A copy of the current policy or guidance in relation to such reports

(3) A copy of the form used to refer a marriage to the Secretary of State under s.28H of the Marriage Act 1949

(4) A copy of the current policy or guidance in relation to such referrals

In the event that you determine some of the information I have requested to be exempt from disclosure, please redact exempt information with black boxes, instead of snipping or excerpting, and please state which category of exemption you believe applies to the information.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in s.12 FOIA, please provide advice and assistance as to how I can refine my request, as required under s.16 FOIA.

Yours faithfully,

Jack Maxwell

Dear Mr Maxwell

 

Thank you for your email below. Your request is being handled as a request

Due to the measures introduced in response to the coronavirus (Covid-19)
pandemic, which include social distancing and protecting vulnerable

Dear Mr Maxwell

 

We are considering your request.  Although the FOIA 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 FOIA 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(1) (a) and (e) of the FOIA which relates 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 30 March 2021.  

 

Yours sincerely

 

Her Majesty’s Passport Office
