We're waiting for Max Kerley (Account suspended) to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

I request the following:

If a persons partner calls in to cancel a WCA, can the DWP use that call as 'reasons' and stop a claim? In addition, is the DWP aware that by doing so, it violates the DPA if that person is not authorised on their claim?

Is it common practice for the CHDA to send out a BF223 to be received the day prior to its deadline to be received by the DWP?

Must the DWP await a BF223 before making its decision?

Yours faithfully,

Max Kerley

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Department for Work and Pensions's handling of my FOI request 'ESA'.

You fail to answer the question.

I'm sure that you are more than capable of reading the English language, as you see fit to regularly abuse and manipulate a claimants correspondence with yourselves.

Please address each question fully. it is not in any way difficult.

If a persons partner calls in to cancel a WCA, can the DWP use that call as 'reasons' and stop a claim? In addition, is the DWP aware that by doing so, it violates the DPA if that person is not authorised on their claim?

Is it common practice for the CHDA to send out a BF223 to be received the day prior to its deadline to be received by the DWP?

Must the DWP await a BF223 before making its decision?

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

Yours faithfully,

Max Kerley

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Department for Work and Pensions's handling of my FOI request 'ESA'.

Again you fail to answer the questions posed to you and you even go so far as to answer a question that was not asked. I did not ask for an explanation for my legal right to request information. The mere fact that I have asked, is indicative of the fact that I am clearly aware of my right to request information.

My questions again for ease:

If a persons partner calls in to cancel a WCA, can the DWP use that call as 'reasons' and stop
a claim? In addition, is the DWP aware that by doing so, it violates the DPA if that person is not
authorised on their claim? Please be advised that I have been informed by a DWP employee, that this is in violation of the DPA and I request that you publicly answer this question.

I'm also well aware of the DMG and it makes no reference to the use of data by a third party.

Is it common practice for the CHDA to send out a BF223 to be received the day prior to its
deadline to be received by the DWP?

You have failed to answer the question. In order for a claimant to fairly deal with their claim, they must be given sufficient time to deal with their claim. Any forms with a time scale to respond, must not include weekends as working days. Please answer the question.

Must the DWP await a BF223 before making its decision?’ You have once again failed to respond.

I provide below part of your response:

In our response dated 18 October 2017, the Freedom of Information officer explained the
procedures when dealing with a 3rd party on behalf of a claimant and that the DWP Decision
Maker (DM) will make a decision on entitlement to Employment and Support Allowance based
on the information available at that time.

By your response, you indicate that the DWP will unlawfully process data and will cease a persons claim prior to receiving a BF223. Is this the case?
