Dear Ian Corless,

We acknowledge receipt of your email and request for information, which will be treated as a request for information under statutory access legislation.

Please note that requests under the Freedom of Information Act and the Environmental Information Regulations (EIRs) will receive a response within 20 working days from the day following the date of receipt of your request.

If the request is for your personal data, your request has been handled as a data subject access request (SAR) under Article 15 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), then we will respond within one month of the receipt of the request.

Public Health England (PHE) is responsible for providing guidance and advice to government and front-line services for all aspects of public health. It is a designated Category 1 responder organisation under the Civil Contingency Act and this specifically includes the COVID-19 response, providing clinical expertise and wider public health advice and guidance across national and local government, the NHS and third sector. As such, you may experience delays when making statutory information access requests during the pandemic.

We will aim to address all requests promptly and within the required response timeframes. However when we are unable to meet the response timeframe we will keep requesters updated on a revised expected timescale for a response to their request. The Information Commissioner recognises this position in its recent guidance, see link: https://ico.org.uk/global/data-protectio...

Dear FOI,

This response from PHE did not give me any information regarding my request.

My original request "Please disclose the evidence demonstrating any potential or actual detriments to a wearer of face coverings, such as headaches, oxygen deficiency, increased CO2 inhalation, staph infection,
inhalation of mask fibres getting into the lungs and anything other.

PHE listed testing against Covid. As you can see from my request. I am looking for data from the damages caused by mask wearing, Nothing to do with Covid

Yours sincerely,

Ian Corless
