Freedom of Information, Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council

Dear Carla

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request. In order for us to log your request I would be grateful if you could submit your full name. This is following ICO guidelines, please see below.

Section 8 states that a request for information should state the name of the applicant.

NOTE: This is not an exhaustive list.
Example Is this a valid request? What would the ICO’s approach likely to be?
The applicant only uses one name e.g. Adrian or initials e.g. S.P.H. No Albeit that the Act only states that “the” name of the applicant is required rather than ‘the full’ name of the applicant, the Commissioner would not consider it unreasonable to ask for a full name to be provided. This is also appropriate given that it could lead to unnecessary confusion/delay/possible data protection breaches if applicants cannot be distinguished from one another.

Kindest regards,
