Consultation responses to the Independent Review of Administrative Law

The request was refused by Ministry of Justice.

Dear Ministry of Justice,

I note from media reports that the Independent Review of Administrative Law (IRAL), chaired by Lord Faulks, has now delivered its report to ministers.

Please supply all the submissions to the IRAL that were made in response to its call for evidence on 7 September 2020, including those submitted after the formal deadline.

If this information is exempt under s.21 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 ("the Act"), please indicate where online I might be able to view and download the submissions.

If this information is exempt under s.22 of the Act, please indicate the date on which it is to be published, and where.

If this information is exempt under s.22A of the Act, I am willing to waive my expectation of a full response within the 20 day period (as set out at s.10 of the Act). In lieu of a full response, please indicate the date on which the IRAL report will be published, and confirm that the submissions will be published (or alternatively, made available to me) on the same date.

I am keen to save time (and the Ministry's time) by avoiding a repeat request for this information, and an associated 20-day delay. Therefore, if you are unable to supply this information immediately due to s.22A, please ensure (and confirm) that this request will remain 'live' on your internal systems while we wait for the IRAL report to be published. I note that the minimal preparatory work required to fulfil this request can be done in advance of the publication of the IRAL report, allowing the requested materials to be published/delivered immediately afterwards. This would be far more efficient approach than requiring me to resubmit an identical request after the IRAL is published.

Yours faithfully,

Robert Sharp

IRAL, Ministry of Justice
