  • Summary: The complainant wrote to the Home Office on 9/3/05 to request a copy of a particular review.

In not correctly notifying the complainant of the need for an extension to the time limit to answer the request, the Home office is found to be in breach of section 10 and section 17. A final response to the request was made on 10/11/05, where some information was provided and other items were withheld.
