Dear Official Solicitor,

Will you please advise the name(s) of the indemnity insurers for the Official Solicitor and his department, the value of the policy, and whether or not it includes insurance against criminal offences committed by the Official Solicitor, members of staff, and contractors (legal services or otherwise).

May I please see a copy of the policy?

Yours faithfully,

Dear Official Solicitor,

Please acknowledge my FOI request.

Dear Ms Snodgrove,

Thank you for your email dated 23rd May 2014.

The Official Solicitor is an independent statutory office holder of the Senior Courts. One of his functions is to act as litigation friend of last resort.

When he acts as litigation friend, he is not a public authority for the purposes of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) and, subsequently, the work this office undertakes on his behalf in that role does not fall within the scope of the FOIA.

As a consequence the Official Solicitor is not subject to the FOIA and I am unable to provide the information requested.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Stevens

Dear Stevens, Mark (OSPT),

You are perfectly able to supply the information. You just refuse to.

I have to assume that there is something you wish to hide.

Yours sincerely,
