Good morning

 

I refer to your email below.  

 

The CCG is processing your request under the terms of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (FOIA). Section 1(1) of FOIA requires us to confirm
or deny whether we hold information requested. However, we will need more
time to consider your request. I will explain this further below.   

 

We have a duty to confirm or deny whether we hold information as soon as
possible and in any event within 20 working days after receiving your
request.  However, the FOIA allows us to extend this deadline if a
qualified exemption applies and we need more time to consider where the
balance of the public interest lies.  Please note that this means we are
not required to confirm or deny whether information is held until such
time as is reasonable in the circumstances.   

 

Under section 43(3) of FOIA the duty to confirm or deny does not arise if
doing so would, or would be likely to prejudice the commercial interests
of any person.   

 

We will need to take additional time (in accordance with section 10(3) of
FOIA) to consider whether the public interest favours (or does not) the
confirmation or denial whether we hold this information. South
Warwickshire CCG has not yet reached a decision on where the balance of
the public interest lies, so we will not be able to provide a full
response within 20 working days. We will endeavour to let you have a
response by 9 Feb 2021 or sooner if at all possible.

 

Kind regards
