Number of actions taken under section 187

The request was refused by Information Commissioner's Office.

Dear Information Commissioner's Office,

I'm writing to request information relating to the number of actions received by the Information Commissioner's Office under section 187 of the Data Protection Act 2018.

If the information is available it would be useful to know:
- what sector each action related to (public body, private body).
- the name of the organisation / organisations that initiated the section 187 actions.
- the number of actions under section 187 that have been concluded by the Information Commissioner's Office.

if you require any clarification regarding this request, please do get in touch I would be happy to help

Yours faithfully,

Matthew Rice
