I am writing in response to your request (copied below) to the House of Lords.

There were two personal injury claims in the relevant period. One was settled by a party other than the House Administration and the other remains unsettled at the time of writing.
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 [email address] or to the Freedom of Information Officer, House of Lords, London SW1A 0PW and explain clearly the nature of your complaint. 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.
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 at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
