Dear J Lee


Thank you for your e-mail, I am writing to advise you that your enquiry
does not fall under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) regime and
has been rejected by the Disclosure Team. Your enquiry has been forwarded
to the relevant department.


It may be helpful if I explain that the FOIA gives individuals and
organisations the right of access to all types of recorded information
held, at the time the request is received, by public authorities such as
the Ministry of Justice (MoJ). Section 84 of the FOIA states that in order
for a request for information to be handled as a FOI request, it must be
for recorded information. For example, a FOI request would be for a copy
of a policy, rather than an explanation as to why we have that policy in
place. On occasion, the MoJ receives requests that do not ask for recorded
information, but ask more general questions about, for example, a policy,
opinion or a decision.


You may wish to re-submit your enquiry to the Ministry of Justice, which
will be treated as Official Correspondence. Our contact details are as


102 Petty France

If you do have any questions relating specifically to the FOIA or Data
Protection Act (DPA), please contact the Disclosure Team at the following

Kind regards,


The Disclosure Team
