Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Lancashire Constabulary should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Paul Ponting (Account suspended)

Dear Lancashire Constabulary,

I would like you to provide me with all information regarding Operation Malaya.

This is a police task force operation that was discussed in an open court on 2rd April 2019 and therefore of public record. It was discussed by a man named George Vella who informed the court he was involved in the operation and privy to the details.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under your Section 16 obligations, as to how I can refine my request to be included in the scope of the Act. In any case, if you can identify ways that my request could be refined please provide further advice and assistance to indicate this.

I look forward to your response within 20 working days, as stipulated by the Act.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Ponting

Dear FOI,

Thank you for the clarification. I would like to point out that the deadline is the absolute latest date a response should take and should not be seen as a 'target' date for releasing the information or be used as any means to delay the release of the information. If you have the information now, as I suspect you do, then the information should be released now and not delayed intentionally until the deadline is reached.

Yours sincerely,

Dear FOI,

Thank you for your email.

As you are aware, the law states that Freedom of Information requests should be replied to promptly and in any case, the law states that you must respond within 20 working days. This is 4 days late so far.

You replied to me on the 29th April after I promoted you for a reply. You told me that the deadline was 'extended' due to bank holidays and that my FOI request was 'due' on the 8th May 2019.

I have made you aware that the deadline is that (a deadline, not a target). You made no reference to any known delay of this FOI request on the 29th of April when you clearly stated the due date was the 8th May 2019, therefore, I am asking for the information I requested immediately.

If you do not have it, why not?
Please tell me what is causing the delay as the information should be readily available.
The task force has been confirmed to exist already by the Crime Commissioner.

I understand the FOI poses a difficult situation for the constabulary to answer, but legally, you must respond and provide the information even though it may assist me with a complaint or claim against the constabulary.

Yours sincerely,
Paul Ponting
