Good Morning,

Thank you for your email.

I am disappointed that you have again sought to extend the response deadline to consider the public interest and would like you to revisit this decision.

ICO guidance on time for compliance with Freedom of Information requests states the following about extensions to the time limit to consider the public interest:

"The Act does not define what might constitute a ‘reasonable’ extension of time. However, our view is that an authority should normally take no more than an additional 20 working days to consider the public interest, meaning that the total time spent dealing with the request should not exceed 40 working days."

and

"An extension beyond this should be exceptional. Examples of such circumstances could include extreme pressures placed on the public authority by a major incident or exceptional levels of complexity involving a number of external parties."

I would ask you to please reconsider whether the additional extension is justified in the current circumstances.

Yours sincerely,

Helen Cross
