Dear Ms Stevens,

 

Freedom of Information Request F20-164

 

Thank you for your request for information as copied below. You have asked
the House of Commons for whether coronavirus tests for Prime Minister
Boris Johnson and Health Secretary Matt Hancock were paid for privately or
by the National Health Service.

 

This information is not held by the House of Commons. It may help you to
know that the House of Commons forms part of the UK’s Legislature and is
not part of the Government (the Executive). You are seeking information
which is most likely held by the Office of the Prime Minister or the
Cabinet Office and therefore you may wish to consider submitting your
request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to them directly.
Contact details can be found at:
[1]https://www.gov.uk/government/organisati...
& [2]https://www.gov.uk/government/organisati....

 

You may also wish to consider contacting Mr Johnson and Mr Hancock
directly to ask for the information you seek, contact details are
available at: [3]http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-o...
However, Members of Parliament are not public authorities for the purposes
of the Freedom of Information Act.  This means that they are not obliged
to respond to requests made under the Act.  Similarly, the Act does not
apply to political parties.

 

FOI applies to public authorities and both the House of Commons and House
of Lords are listed as institutions covered by the Act.  In addition,
information held by government offices in relation to ministerial
activities and responsibilities will also be subject to the Act’s
provisions.  Further information about FOIA and Parliament is available on
our website: [4]http://www.parliament.uk/site-informatio....

 

 

You may, if dissatisfied with the handling of your request, complain to
the House of Commons. Alternatively, if you are dissatisfied with the
outcome of your request you may ask the House of Commons to conduct an
internal review of any decision regarding your request.  Complaints or
requests for internal review should be addressed to: Information Rights
and Information Security Service, Research & Information Team, House of
Commons, London SW1A 0AA or [5][House of Commons request email].  Please ensure
that you specify the full reasons for your complaint or internal review
along with any arguments or points that you wish to make.

 

If you remain dissatisfied, you may appeal to the Information Commissioner
at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF,
[6]www.ico.gov.uk.

 

Yours sincerely,
