  • Summary: The complainant requested the name of the head of a unit within the Legal Services Commission, the instructions given to one of the public authority’s employees when writing to the complainant and any cover note written by the Attorney General, Lord Goldsmith, which accompanied the complainant’s “critique” when it was transferred from his office to the public authority. The public authority failed to respond to his request under the Act and a complaint was subsequently made to the Commissioner.
