Dear Mr Smith,

Thank you for your e-mail and apologies for the delay in getting back to you. I am writing to advise you that your enquiry does not fall under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) regime. As the WDTK website it to be used only for FOI requests we will not be actioning your email.
It may be helpful if I explain that the FOIA gives individuals and organisations the right of access to all types of recorded information held, at the time the request is received, by public authorities such as the Ministry of Justice (MoJ). Section 84 of the FOIA states that in order for a request for information to be handled as a FOI request, it must be for recorded information. For example, a FOI request would be for a copy of a policy, rather than an explanation as to why we have that policy in place. On occasion, the MoJ receives requests that do not ask for recorded information, but ask more general questions about, for example, a policy, opinion or a decision.
To submit your question to the Ministry of Justice please use the following: and

Please ensure this is sent via a personal email account, rather than through the WDTK website.
If you do have any questions relating specifically to the FOIA or Data Protection Act (DPA), please contact the Disclosure Team at the following e-mail address: [email address]

Kind regards,

Disclosure Team

Dear Disclosure Team,

Sorry I don't understand why the MOJ is saying this is not a request for recorded information when it clearly is and I had previously asked for clarification and a break-down of this specialist civil work. Because I didnt receive a reply I submitted it under a separate heading.

Can you please explain, when it was your department that provided a list of specialist jurisdiction civil ticketed judges who carry out work in the courts under the headings you gave .

MOJ must known and hold recorded information as to what precise specialist civil work is being carried out by its judges within the courts..

Yours sincerely,

Mr. Smith
