I would like to request information relating to the use of Schedule 2 Part 1 Para 4 (Immigration) of the Data Protection Act 2018 in relation to requests for personal data.
Specifically I would like to know:
- How many times the exemption has been used by the Home Office between January 2020 and 1 December 2020.
- The number of times the use of this exemption has been appealed by the requester in the same timeline.
- The number of times those appeals have been resulted in overturning the exercise of the exemption.
- Confirmation of the content of the letter received by individuals accompanying any request for personal data when Schedule 2 Part 1 Para 4.
