Dear Home Office,
Please provide all of the information you are required to disclose following the FTT decision Home Office v IC & JCWI (EA/2020/0253):
'1. On 28 August 2019, Mr Chai Patel, acting, as we understand it, on behalf of the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants (‘JCWI’) wrote to the Home Office, requesting, pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (‘FOIA’) a copy of “an unpublished Policy Equality Assessment” setting out “the Government’s consideration of the impacts of the EU Settlement Scheme on those who share a protected characteristic.”
82. For all of these reasons, the appeal succeeds to the extent that the Home Office is entitled to withhold disclosure of the Annex A paragraphs. Otherwise, the appeal is dismissed.'
