Dear Paul K Donnachie

We acknowledge receipt of your email and request for information, which will be treated as a request for information under statutory access legislation.

Please note that requests under the Freedom of Information Act and the Environmental Information Regulations (EIRs) will receive a response within 20 working days from the day following the date of receipt of your request.

If the request is for your personal data, your request has been handled as a data subject access request (SAR) under Article 15 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), then we will respond within one month of the receipt of the request.

Public Health England (PHE) is responsible for providing guidance and advice to government and front-line services for all aspects of public health. It is a designated Category 1 responder organisation under the Civil Contingency Act and this specifically includes the COVID-19 response, providing clinical expertise and wider public health advice and guidance across national and local government, the NHS and third sector. As such, you may experience delays when making statutory information access requests during the pandemic.

We will aim to address all requests promptly and within the required response timeframes. However when we are unable to meet the response timeframe we will keep requesters updated on a revised expected timescale for a response to their request. The Information Commissioner recognises this position in its recent guidance, see link: https://ico.org.uk/global/data-protectio....

Dear FOI,

You have failed to do what I asked in my FOI request. In particular, you have failed -

1. To provide me with a URL for a copy of the original 2015 List, which you claim is reasonably accessible on line. I would not be wasting my time contacting you if it was. Moreover, if it is so readily accessible it will not be an onerous challenge for you simply to accede to my request by providing me with such a URL or other link to allow me to access the original list. To that extent I can only conclude that your reply was designed to be deliberately obstructive, uncooperative and unhelpful.

I could understand it if answering my FOI request in the manner I requested were to involve undue effort on your part. But, by your own admission, you have the original 2015 List. It is there. It can be shared. All that is lacking is the energy and/or willingness to cooperate. Or perhaps there is something more sinister going on, something to hide?

2. The link you have given me just takes me to the first page of what I imagine is the document containing the list. I specifically asked you not to provide me with this this so you either did not bother to read my request; or your provision of the front page is designed to be deliberately insulting. Either way, kindly remedy this.

For the avoidance of doubt, I do not consider that my FOI request has been dealt with in anything resembling a satisfactory manner. For this to be the case is wholly unacceptable.

I await your reply.

Yours faithfully

Paul K Donnachie
