Magisterial Selection Statistics

We're waiting for M Shah to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Ministry of Justice,

Please can you tell me how many Magisterial applications were made from July 2016 to July 2018, how many were refused initially, and how many were refused after the first and second interview stages. If possible, please can you send me the information as a bench breakdown?

Yours faithfully,

M S

Disclosure Team, Ministry of Justice

Dear M S,

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:
http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2000...
Kind regards,

Disclosure Team
