New Years Honours List 2020

The request was refused by Cabinet Office.

Dear Cabinet Office,

Can I request what steps are being taken to investigate who was responsible for the posting on line of the personal addresses of those who had received honours in the NY list 2020 which goes against both the DPA and GDPR acts.

I further would be interested to know what action will be taken against those who have made this gross misconduct.

NB I am not looking for any names, I am interested in the procedure and outcome of the investigation.

Yours faithfully,

RP McE

Dear Cabinet Office,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Cabinet Office's handling of my FOI request 'New Years Honours List 2020'.

I was given a link to a statement read in the House of Commons which answered the first part of the FOI request.

As part of my FOI request, I also asked "what action will be taken against those who have made this gross misconduct". This, I believe, was not answered in the reply.

I would request that this is answered in line with the original request timescale. As the person who made the mistake is a Crown/Civil Servant, I believe it is the public's right to know what action is being taken against them for this gross misconduct. The FOI does NOT require the person's name, merely the details of the rehabilitation/disciplinary action being taken within the Cabinet Office. Though an idea of the grade of the person responsible would be appreciated.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/n...

Yours faithfully,

RP McE
