Dear Ministry of Justice,

I would like to request a list of the names of all women who have died in prison in the UK from the start of 2006 till the present day.

Please could you also provide some information for each of the women:

- How each death was classified (ie. suicide, natural causes, homicide)
- The sentence length and crime committed for each of the women
- The ethnic background of each of the women
- at which prison each of the women died

Yours faithfully,
MMunro

Disclosure Team, Ministry of Justice

Dear MMunro.

Please note, under section 8(1) of FOIA, a request for information must comply with three requirements. It must:

(a) be in writing,
(b) state the name of the applicant and an address for correspondence, and
(c) describes the information requested.

After initial consideration, this request appears to comply with requirements (a) and (c) but it does not comply with requirement (b) because you have not provided your full name.
I am therefore not required to process your request without information that can later be referred to, as per Section 8(1)(b) FOIA. The information we require is your name.
As your request has been deemed invalid, I am not obliged to disclose the requested information at this point and I would like to take this opportunity to recommend that any future FOI submissions adhere to Section 8 of the FOIA.
To enable us to meet your request, please resubmit your application in accordance with the above requirements. We will consider your resubmitted request upon receipt as long as it meets the requirements stated above.
You will then receive the information requested within the statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Act, subject to the information not being exempt.
You can find out more about Section 8 by reading the extract from the Act available at the attached link:

Kind regards,

Disclosure Team
