DWP freedom-of-information-requests, Department for Work and Pensions

Dear Mark Ritchie,

Ref: VTR2070

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request received on 2/6/16.

Personal information about a third party is treated as exempt information under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information (FoI) Act 2000. This is because access to personal information is treated under the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998 and can only be released to you where such disclosure would not breach that person’s right to privacy.

DWP maintains the following policy on disclosure of personal information:

"All personal information held in social security records is regarded as confidential. Information will not normally be disclosed to third parties without the consent of the person concerned. Information may normally be disclosed without consent to meet statutory requirements; to comply with a court order; to prevent duplication of payments from public funds; or where there is a compelling public interest in making the disclosure."

All disclosures made by DWP, in order to be considered authorised must be able to demonstrate that at least one of the above criteria apply. Any disclosure must have a sound legal footing and comply with the Data Protection Act 1998 Principles.

Under the FoI Act, DWP is not obliged to confirm or deny that it holds personal information about third parties, but even if was held, the Department would not disclose personal information.

If you have any queries about this letter please contact me quoting the reference number above.

Yours sincerely,

Central FoI Team
Department for Work and Pensions

Dear DWP freedom-of-information-requests,

So i ask for John Quinns number and you give me the number for the jobcentre??

I do not need the jobcentre number as i already have a job. I asked for a number ao i can discuss my concerns with the DWP as you said that you are not obliged to give John Quinns number out on here. I asked you to send the number to me and or provide me with a contact within the DWP to discuss my concerns. This is nothing to do with the jobcentre so i dont know why you did that.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Ritchie

I suspect you might have been given incorrect information. Unless there are a lot of John Quinn's in the DWP this seems to be the relevant one & he no longer works for the DWP.
