Dear House of Commons,

People who are not from the only protected religion – majority group

Can you please tell me under FOI how many MP's are not from the only protected religious group – who can represent the majority of the English/British people.

Yours faithfully,

Peter Injustice

Dear Mr Injustice,

 

 

Freedom of Information request F16-272

 

Thank you for your request for information as copied below. You asked us
how many MPs are not from the “only protected religious group”.

 

The House of Commons does not collect data about the religious beliefs of
MPs, therefore the information you have requested is not held.  On this
occasion we are unable to identify any other public authority who may hold
the information you require and to whom you could submit your Freedom of
Information request.

 

You may wish to consider contacting Members individually to ask for the
information you seek, contact details are available at:
[1]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.

 

It may interest you to know that, while the information you requested is
not held, the House of Commons library published a Research Briefing some
time ago entitled ‘Parliament and Religious Disabilities’ which is
available on the parliamentary website here:
[2]http://researchbriefings.parliament.uk/R...

 

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, Department of HR and Change, House of
Commons, London SW1A 0AA or [3][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,
[4]www.ico.gov.uk.

 

Yours sincerely,
