Dear Sandra,

Thank you for your letter of 29 April 2019.

I should like to appeal your decision not to release the information requested and request an internal review.

You refer to Section 44 of the FoI act which exempts information if prohibited by or under any enactment. You reference section 348(2) of the FSMA as this enactment. You provide no other reasons to refuse disclosure.

Section 348(2) defines confidential information as restricted to a person (individual), it does not relate to information referring to a corporate body such as Starling Bank Limited. You are incorrect to state that it refers broadly to "any information... which has been received by the Bank". This is simply not true and is not the wording in the legislation you reference (https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/200...).

In fact, Section 348(4) states explicitly that "information is not confidential information if it is in the form [...] so framed that it is not possible to ascertain from it information relating to any particular person". It implicitly endorse disclosure relating to corporate bodies.

The information in this request does not request any personal information regarding an individual. It requests information relating to the corporate entity of Starling Bank Limited. You are able to make this available in an appropriately redacted form if personal names are listed, and I request you do so.

Yours sincerely,
Aimie
