Freedom of Information Act response times

The request was successful.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I would like to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 regarding the speed and efficiency of the Department for Transport in responding to requests under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, specifically:

(a) what is the number of requests which are not handled within the statutary twenty day limit?
(b) what is the percentage of requests which are not handled within the statutary twenty day limit?
(c) after a followup reminder that a request has not been handled within the statutary twenty day limit, what is the average response time?
(d) if the figure in (b) is higher than nil, whether policies or targets have been put in place to ensure that response times increase?
(e) if such policies or targets have been put in place in the past, whether or not they have been successful?

I would appreciate if the responses to (a), (b) and (c) could be split by some kind of uniform time measure - perhaps by year or month.

Yours faithfully,

Tom Morris

Dear Sir or Madam,

I have, in the past, sent a Freedom of Information Act request
regarding airport body scans which was completely ignored.

I would like to know what the current policy is regarding the use of
the low-level body scans at airports such as Heathrow, specifically
what protections are in place to prevent misuse of collected images.

Yours faithfully,

Tom Morris
