The complainant has requested information on a review into the funding of Islamist extremism in the UK. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Cabinet Office has appropriately relied on section 23 FOIA (Information supplied by, or relating to, bodies dealing with security matters) to withhold the requested information. She however finds the public authority in breach section 10(1) FOIA for failing to respond to the request within the statutory time limit. The Commissioner does not require the public authority to take any steps to ensure compliance with the legislation.
