The complainant requested information from the Cabinet Office relating to correspondence it received about a proposed visit from the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump. The Cabinet Office refused the request under section 12(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the Act) as it considered that compliance with the request would exceed the appropriate limit. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Cabinet Office has not demonstrated that section 12(1) applies. The Commissioner requires the public authority to issue a response to the complainant which does not refuse it under section 12(1) of the Act.
