Dear Prime Minister's Office,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Prime Minister's Office's handling of my FOI request 'Activity of Boris Johnson while DWP deaths were being read out in HoC'.

The response to our Freedom of Information request {Your ref: FOI329654} of: "We do not hold information in relation to your request" failed to apply Section 16

"The purpose of section 16 is to ensure that a public authority communicates with an applicant to find out what information they want and how they can obtain it."

What action we require:
It is perfectly reasonable for the Prime Minister's Office to 'provide advice and assistance' on which department holds the Prime Minister's diary so that the information we asked for may be provided.

What the law says - Section 16

16.—(1) It shall be the duty of a public authority to provide advice and assistance, so far as it would be reasonable to expect the authority to do so, to persons who propose to make, or have made, requests for information to it.

16.—(2) Any public authority which, in relation to the provision of advice or assistance in any case, conforms with the code of practice under section 45 is to be taken to comply with the duty imposed by subsection (1) in relation to that case.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/a...
