SIC Standards for correspondence – On 13 September 2013, Mr X asked the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body (the SPCB) for information about the standards which apply when MSPs respond to correspondence. The SPCB provided information to Mr X, but Mr X was dissatisfied and requested a review under FOISA.
Following an investigation, the Commissioner concluded the SPCB partially failed to deal with Mr X’s request for information in accordance with Part 1 of FOISA, by failing to deal with his request for review as required by section 21 of FOISA. On this occasion, she did not require the SPCB to take any action as it had provided all the relevant information it held.
