Correspondence between BIS, Professor Garratt and Nominet officials 2008-9 - a Freedom of Information request to Department for Business, Innovation and Skills - WhatDoTheyKnow:
"I am writing to request an internal review of Department for Business, Innovation and Skills's handling of my FOI request 'Correspondence between BIS, Professor Garratt and Nominet
Note that a good deal of correspondence was omitted from the FoI reply, but is already public domain since 11 September - can there be any justification in refusing to release such information?
See Rosenbaum, M. (2012) http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-19...
I also note that the Information Commissioner has made plain that civil servants cannot exclude relevant communications from FoI requests by use of private emails, a point which I made in my
initial request: ICO (2011) http://www.ico.gov.uk/news/latest_news/2...
Furthermore, under the Digital Economy Act 2010 ss.19-21, Nominet has clearly become a co-regulatory body performing public functions, is judicially reviewable and therefore its correspondence with government (at the very least) should also be subject to FoI requests." 'via Blog this'
