Dear Mr Ansari,
 
Please find below the outcome of the internal review in to the handling of
your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.  This review was
conducted by Graham Walker, Head of Counter Fraud (MOPAC).
 
MOPAC’s original response to Mr Ansari was on 11 December 2012 (i.e. 23
working days after the request).  Although there was some delay in
actually providing a response to Mr Ansari, in the circumstances there was
justification in requiring an extension in order to apply the public
interest test. (e.g. liaison with the MPS and assessment of legal
professional privilege). The letter explained why MOPAC thought the
information may be exempt and he was advised that MOPAC hoped to send him
a response by 3 January 2013.
 
In fact, he was sent a letter on 14 January 2013 (i.e. 43 working days
after the original request) which outlined MOPAC’s decision.
 
The original and the ultimate responses to the request were both outside
the time limits for compliance as required by Section 10 Freedom of
Information Act and the ICO notes for guidance, albeit by only 3 days.
Whilst regrettable, there is no indication that the responses were delayed
intentionally.
 
I hope that you find this helpful.
 
Yvonne Peart
Information Officer
