Another Freedom of Information delay
This blog post is once again about the freedom of information request that was supposed to be answered. Last month they said this:
We will not be able to provide a full response within the stipulated period. Your request is being dealt with as a matter of urgency and now aim to respond by
My request was:
‘How much is spent on digital TV (Sky, Freeview, NTL etc), and games consoles (Xbox, Playstation and games etc) between January 2002- October 2006 in Holmehouse Prison’
I got a response today and they said:
Whilst we continue to make progress in considering your request and the exemption contained within s43 if the act I will be unable to provide a response by today as previously stated. I now aim to respond by 03.04.07.
I apologise for this continued delay and thank you for your patience in this matter.
I now have to wait another month and a day even though I have been waiting since November for an answer and if I wait until April I will have been waiting for 5 months. Who thinks they are just fobbing me off until the new Freedom of Information law comes into force?
