FOICOMMONS, House of Commons

Dear Mr Wells,

I am writing to you regarding your request for information received on 17 March 2010.

When Parliament has been dissolved there is no ‘House of Commons’ for the purposes of Part 1 of Schedule 1 to the 2000 Act, and there is therefore no ‘public authority’ to which the 20 day deadline under section 10 of the 2000 Act is capable of applying. The time limits do not, therefore, apply during the period of Dissolution.

The effect of the 2000 Act, including its time limits, resumes when the new House of Commons first meets.

As your request was received before the House dissolved, the time remaining on your request will resume on 18 May, being the day the new Parliament first meets. We will endeavour to respond on or before 24 May 2010.

Yours sincerely

Bob Castle
Head of Information Rights and Information Security
