Dear FOI,

A reminder of the law on replying promptly, as per the ICO at https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisatio...

"21. The obligation to respond promptly means that an authority should comply with a request as soon as is reasonably practicable.

22. Whilst this is linked to the obligation to respond within 20 working days, it should be treated as a separate requirement.

23. An authority will therefore need to both respond promptly and within 20 working days in order to comply with section 10(1).

24. Authorities should regard the 20 working day limit as a ‘long stop’, in other words the latest possible date on which they may issue a response.

25. It also follows that an authority which provides its response close to, or on, the final day of the 20 working day limit ought to be able to both account for, and justify, the length of time taken to comply with the request."

You will be very aware that this is an issue of current significance. If you intend to delay until close to, or on the final day, I additionally require you to account for and justify the length of time taken.

Yours sincerely,

Allan Norman

FOI, Lincolnshire County Council
