The complainant has requested information relating to an award made by The National Lottery Community Fund (TNLCF) to Mermaids UK. The Commissioner’s decision is that Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust (the Trust) has failed to issue a response to the request that complies with the requirements of section 1(1) of the FOIA. The Commissioner requires the Trust to issue a fresh response to the request that does not rely on the assertion that the Trust does not hold information within scope of the request because it was not the originator of the information and would not therefore be held for its own purposes. In addition, the Trust has also breached section 10(1) of the FOIA by failing to respond to the request within the required timeframe.
