Dear Office for National Statistics,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Office for National Statistics's handling of my FOI request 'Causes of death'.

The response linked to below did not address the question and completely reworded my request. The response then goes on to answer the reworded question which bears no similarity to the original request. I did not request 'monthly figures, of numbers of people who have died in Wales and separately how many have died in England, from only Covid-19 symptoms in 2020';

For clarity, I requested information on the following:
How many people under 60 with no underlying health conditions died FROM covid 19 in 2020?
How many people under 60 with no underlying health conditions died from falling down the stairs in 2020?

Your respondent alleged that I requested:
Is it possible for you to provide monthly figures, of numbers of people who have died in Wales and separately how many have died in England, from only Covid-19 symptoms in 2020?
I can only find death figures of people who have been recorded as having Covid-19 in the 28 days before they died.

This is evidently not a valid response. To further clarify, I do not require these figure broken down by month: the totals for 2020 will suffice.

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

Yours faithfully,

A Sambrook
