DCMS name change

M Bimmler made this Freedom of Information request to Cabinet 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 refused by Cabinet Office.

Dear Cabinet Office,

I understand that DCMS has officially changed its name to "Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport" as of today.

As the Cabinet Office leads on Machinery of Government changes and cross-departmental coordination, I would assume that the Cabinet Office has been consulted on this departmental name change.

Please provide the documentation which you hold on this name change (namely any submissions to the Prime Minister, other Cabinet Office ministers or Cabinet Office senior civil servants, any internal file notes and any internal or cross-departmental correspondence).

A similar request is pending with DCMS, thus please consider Cabinet Office records (incl. Prime Minister's Office records) for this only.

Yours faithfully,

Michael Bimmler

Dear Cabinet Office,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Cabinet Office's handling of my FOI request 'DCMS name change', your reference FOI324870

I would ask that you firstly review whether the exemptions cited are indeed engaged and secondly review whether the public interest has been assessed properly.

I should point out that the request concerns a 'simple' name change. To hear that all information relating to that name change is covered by ss 35 and 42 FOIA is quite astonishing. Moreover, while your public interest test includes some "boilerplate" reasons for or against publication in situations where s35 or s42 may be engaged, the public interest test shows no evidence of actual application to and engagement with the information sought in this particular request.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/d...

Yours faithfully,
