Communications with the ICO

M Bimmler made this Freedom of Information request to Home Office

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Home Office,

please could you provide me with any records you hold on communications with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) regarding the Home Office's timeliness in responding to FOI requests and Internal Review requests.

To be clear, I do not refer to communications on individual s50 complaints to the ICO but to any non-case-specific communications with the ICO on this. These records would likely be held within the Information Access Team which deals with Freedom of Information.

Please restrict your search to records from 01 January 2017 onwards. Please include letters, emails and records of meetings / phone calls in your consideration.

Yours faithfully,

M Bimmler

Dear Mr Riddle,

many thanks for your response and for the material disclosed.

I would just have one question (and for the avoidance of doubt, this is not an Internal Review request at this stage):

Has the s31 exemption you mentioned in your cover letter only been applied to redact certain parts of documents released or have any documents been entirely withheld under s31? If the latter is the case, could you please inform me which documents have been entirely withheld (e.g. “30 June letter from X to Y on Z”)?

Yours sincerely,

M Bimmler

Dear Mr Bimmler

 

In response to your email of 29 December 2017, I can inform you that no
documents have been entirely withheld under section 31(1)(g).  31(1)(g)
was applied to redact certain parts of the documents that were released.

 

Yours Sincerely
