Dear M Hunter,

I am writing further to your email of 7 February 2021, in which you made a request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

The FOIA sets out some circumstances in which information may not be disclosed. We are currently considering these in relation to section 43 of the Act which relates to information commercial interests.

Some exemptions, including section 43, require public authorities to consider whether the public interest in confirming or denying that the information is held and releasing the information is outweighed by the public interest in maintaining the exemption. Where this is the case, the deadline for responding to requests can be extended.

More information about exemptions and public interest tests is available on the website of the Information Commissioner’s Office (www.ico.org.uk).

We will write to you again by 5 April 2021. If you have any queries in the meantime, then you can email me at the address above quoting reference number FOI2021-022.

Yours sincerely,

L Webb
Serious Fraud Office

Dear +Information Officer,

Reference number FOI2021-022

I am writing further to your reply of 8 March, in which you wrote “We will write to you again by 5 April 2021.”
That date has passed and so the response to my request is now long overdue.

By law, under all circumstances, you should have replied already so I’d be grateful if you would now provide the information originally requested.

Yours sincerely,

M Hunter

+Information Officer, Serious Fraud Office
