The complainant requested information from the Home Office about Operation Pelican. By the date of this notice the Home Office had not issued a substantive response to this request. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Home Office has failed to complete its deliberations on the balance of the public interest within a reasonable time and has therefore breached section 17(3) of the FOIA. Having confirmed that information is held within the scope of the request the Commissioner requires the Home Office to either disclose the requested information or issue a refusal notice in accordance with the requirements of section 17 of the FOIA.
