Dear Mr Giampaglia,

 

 

Freedom of Information Request F17-402

 

Thank you for your request for information as copied below.  You asked for
all communications relating to universal credit that have been received by
the parliamentary office or constituency office of Elizabeth Truss MP from
members of the public.

 

This information is not held by the House of Commons.

 

The House of Commons does not hold or have access to any correspondence or
communications sent to or from Members in relation to their constituency
or political activities.  MPs are not employees of the House of Commons
and they are individual responsible, as Data Controllers, for the
information they hold.

 

In addition, while email communications to @parliament.uk addresses are
routed through or stored on parliamentary email servers, the House of
Commons does not hold this data for its own purposes. IT administrators
may have technical access to these systems and servers, however, the
public authority has neither created the data transmitted or stored
therein, nor does it retain the material for its own purposes.

 

As MPs are responsible for their own correspondence, you may wish to
consider contacting Elizabeth Truss MP directly to ask for the information
you seek. Contact details are available on the parliamentary website at:
[1]http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-o....  However please
note, Members of Parliament are not public authorities for the purposes of
the Freedom of Information Act, which means that they are not obliged to
respond to requests made under the Act.

 

Lastly, it may be helpful to know that the business correspondence of
Government Ministers may be held by the Department in which they work. 
Government Departments are public authorities in accordance with the
FOIA.  Elizabeth Truss MP was appointed as Chief Secretary to the Treasury
in June 2017 and therefore you may wish to consider submitting your
request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to the HM Treasury. 
Contact details can be found at:
[2]https://www.gov.uk/government/organisati....

 

 

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, Research and Information Team, 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,

 

Lauren
