HL FOI & Information Compliance, House of Lords

Dear Ms Kell,

 

I am emailing to update you regarding your Freedom of Information (FOI)
request to the House of Lords (copied below). We are currently considering
a qualified exemption, section 43(2) (commercial interests), in relation
to information within the scope of your request. We now require more time
to consider the public interest test in relation to this exemption. We
therefore need to extend the deadline for responding to your request, in
accordance with section 10(3) of the FOI Act.

 

We apologise for the delay and aim to provide the full response to your
request as soon as possible, and at least within the next 20 working days.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Kimberley Swift

Information Compliance Team

Dear Ms Kell,

 

Please find attached our response to your request (copied below) to the
House of Lords Administration. Please note that it is not possible to
attach all the documents to one email due to file size. This email
contains part of the information for Question 1. The remaining information
(relating to Questions 1 and 3) will be sent in separate emails.

 

You may, if dissatisfied with the treatment of your request, ask the House
of Lords to conduct an internal review. This should be addressed to
[1][email address] and explain clearly the nature of your complaint
in terms of compliance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
Arrangements will be made for someone who has not been involved in dealing
with your request to conduct an internal review within 20 working days.

 

You should note that we will not normally accept an application for
internal review if it is received more than two months after the date our
response was sent. Any such request received after this time will only be
considered in exceptional circumstances.

 

If, following this review, you remain dissatisfied with the House’s
treatment of your request for information you may then take your complaint
to the Information Commissioner using the contact details available here:
[2]https://ico.org.uk/global/contact-us/

 

Please note that due to the Covid-19 pandemic our office is temporarily
closed, and the FOI team are currently unable to receive correspondence
sent by post.

 

The Information Commissioner’s Office has also advised that their office
is closed for the foreseeable future and that they are currently unable to
receive correspondence by post.

 

Yours sincerely,
