Dear Ministry of Justice,

should a enforcement agent break the law via excessive levy or wrongful distress will he lose his certification ?
will he still be able to hold a certificate for the chasing of high court debts?

should a enforcement agent company enter into a contract collecting on behalf of a local council and then they employ self employed agents should they then lose their licence if wrongful distress by that self employed agent occurs?

Yours faithfully,

steve

Dear Steve

Please note, under section 8(1) of FOIA, a request for information must comply with three requirements. It must:

(a) be in writing,
(b) state the name of the applicant and an address for correspondence, and
(c) describes the information requested.

After initial consideration, this request appears to comply with requirements (a) and (c) but it does not comply with requirement (b) because you have not provided your full name.
I am therefore not required to process your request without information that can later be referred to, as per Section 8(1)(b) FOIA. The information we require is your name.
As your request has been deemed invalid, I am not obliged to disclose the requested information at this point and I would like to take this opportunity to recommend that any future FOI submissions adhere to Section 8 of the FOIA.
To enable us to meet your request, please resubmit your application in accordance with the above requirements. We will consider your resubmitted request upon receipt as long as it meets the requirements stated above.
You will then receive the information requested within the statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Act, subject to the information not being exempt.
