Your request is being dealt with under the terms of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and we aim to answer your request within twenty

ability to do this.

 

The Information Commissioner’s Office has acknowledged that resources,
whether they are finances or people, might be diverted away from usual

The ICO cannot extend statutory timescales, but will tell people through
their communications channels that they may experience understandable
delays when making information rights requests during the pandemic.

 

In some circumstances a fee may be payable. If that is the case, I will
let you know. A fees notice will be issued to you if appropriate. You will
be required to pay the relevant fee before we will proceed to deal with
