Dear Scottish Public Services Ombudsman,

I am puzzled by your response. You wrote:

'In your correspondence you ask for information, however, before I can progress your request I would be grateful is you could clarify your full name and address.'

For previous requests my name and address were not required:

Please advise of any tribunal decisions or changes to the law that have prompted your new approach to dealing with FOI requests made via whatdotheyknow?

Yours faithfully,

Dear Scottish Public Services Ombudsman,

Further information. You wrote:

'Section 8 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 requires that when making a request for information an applicant must provide his or her full name, together with a secure address for correspondence.'

What the Act (relevant part) actually says:

'8 Requesting information

(1) Any reference in this Act to “requesting” information is a reference to making a request
which—

(b) states the name of the applicant and an address for correspondence;'

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/asp/2002/1...

The Act says nothing about providing a 'full' name as you have erroneously claimed.

Also, the whatdotheyknow address is a suitable address for correspondence. Over 264,000 FOI requests have been through whatdotheyknow.

From the whatdotheyknow site:

'The guidance says that "Mr Arthur Thomas Roberts" can make a valid request as "Arthur Roberts", "A. T. Roberts", or "Mr Roberts", but not as "Arthur" or "A.T.R."'

'If a public authority asks you for your full, physical address, reply to them saying that section 8.1.b of the FOI Act asks for an "address for correspondence", and that the email address you are using is sufficient.'
