Dear Office of Communications,
A claim has been made recently which relies on the result of a recent FoI request concerning Mr Scott Mcleman and his amateur radio license status, in particular his holding of the call sign MM0LID.
I would like to receive copies of all requests and responses concerning Mr Mcleman. If a time frame is required in order to bring my request under the approved cost limit, please provide information for all requests since July 2016.
Thank you for your email.
We cannot confirm or deny that the information you have requested is held, as it would fall under the exemption section 40 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, which relates to personal information. Section 40 provides that such information is exempt for the purposes of the Act. We would not able to disclose information about an individual to someone else. without the individual's consent. When publishing FOI requests and responses, we do not generally disclose the personal details of requesters, unless the requester has done so already, for example, by making their request via a public forum such as whatdotheyknow.com
Section 40 is an absolute exemption under the Act and does not require a public interest test.
I hope this is helpful.
