Dear Mr Paffvett,

Thank you for your enquiry, I am writing to advise you that your enquiry does not fall under the Freedom of Information regime and will be treated by the department as Official Correspondence.

It may be helpful if I explain that the Freedom of Information Act (2000) 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 Act states that in order for a request for information to be handled as a Freedom of Information (FOI) request, it must be for recorded information. For example, a Freedom of Information request would be for a copy of a policy, rather than an explanation as to why we have that policy in place. On occasion, we receive requests that do not ask for a copy of recorded information, but ask more general questions about, for example, a policy, opinion or a decision.

Since you are asking for confirmation of a variety of questions relating to the UK Supreme Court, this will be best dealt with by our Ministerial Correspondence Unit (MCU) who will process your query as Official Correspondence. I have copied them into this e-mail but they can be contacted via the contact details below should you wish to follow up this e-mail.:
