Information Owner of LSO business

We're waiting for YGLSZ to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Ministry of Justice,

This FOI query relates to a complaint I made to the LSO in 2011.

Although the LO assumed responsibility of LSO business since it was abolished in 2011, it explains to me that it is not the information owner of LSO business so, unable to reveal why the LSO failed to deal with a complaint I made against a firm of solicitors.

Although I'm not expecting the original complaint to be handled, learning why the LSO
failed to deal it may assist me; its failure affects me to date.

Are you able to kindly identify the information owner of LSO business?

Yours faithfully,
YGLSZ

Dear Sir or Madam,

Please note, under section 8(1) of FOIA, a request for information must comply with three requirements. It must:

(a) be in writing,
(b) state the name of the applicant and an address for correspondence, and
(c) describes the information requested.

After initial consideration, this request appears to comply with requirements (a) and (c) but it does not comply with requirement (b) because you have not provided your full name.
I am therefore not required to process your request without information that can later be referred to, as per Section 8(1)(b) FOIA. The information we require is your name.
As your request has been deemed invalid, I am not obliged to disclose the requested information at this point and I would like to take this opportunity to recommend that any future FOI submissions adhere to Section 8 of the FOIA.
To enable us to meet your request, please resubmit your application in accordance with the above requirements. We will consider your resubmitted request upon receipt as long as it meets the requirements stated above.
You will then receive the information requested within the statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Act, subject to the information not being exempt.
You can find out more about Section 8 by reading the extract from the Act available at the attached link:

Kind regards,

Dear Ministry of Justice,

Thank you for your message.

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Ministry of Justice's handling of my FOI request 'Information Owner of LSO business'.

You identify the Legal Ombudsman and Legal Services Board as organisations which may be able to assist me. In fact, both organisations have already been contacted; the LSB directs me to you.

It's noted you stress the MOJ does not hold the information requested. This is understood and accepted however, is it for me to identify where the information is held? Surely this is matter for the MOJ: wherever its held, it comes under your jurisdiction.

Dear YGLSZ,

Thank you for your email.

We have reviewed the our previous correspondence with you. Your original request was for us to 'identify the information owner of LSO business'. As we do not hold the information we are unable to confirm exactly where the information is held. All that we are able to do is to suggest where this information may be held.

If you are requesting the information owner of Legal Ombudsman business then we can only suggest that you contact them again as we would not hold this information.

Kind Regards
