Dear ICO,

RE: FOI request: Community Work Placements hosts of 1 August 2016

You said: “If you do not receive any response within 10 working days, that is, by the close of business on 18 November 2016, please contact us and the Commissioner will consider progression to a decision notice”

This afternoon, I Frank Zola, after an FOI request to the DWP on ‘Community Work Placements hosts’ of 1 August 2016, have not heard from them by 5pm that they were prepared to disclose the information requested at once, or explain why my original request and request for internal review have been totally ignored. I therefore expect the ICO to issue a decision notice.

The Mirror has reported on the DWP’s contempt, for FOI due process, on this and a related matter:
