Freedom of information requests

Freedom of information compliance Statistics

We publish statistics on how we handle requests made under the Freedom of information Act 2000 (FOIA2000) and Environmental Information Regulation 2004. This is in accordance with the Freedom of Information Code of Practice 2018. This is in line with the ICO Freedom of Information Code of Practice, Section 8 Publication Schemes (paragraphs 8.5 and 8.6).

We publish this data a month after the end of the quarter. This is because we have up to 20 working days to respond to FOI and EIR requests. This gives us enough time to capture the outcome of all the requests made in that quarter.
