The complainant has requested from Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust (the Trust) the total cost of legal services for the inquest of a named individual. The Trust cited section 12(1) of the FOIA (cost of compliance) to refuse the request. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Trust was not entitled to rely on section 12(1) of the FOIA to refuse to comply with the request. The Commissioner requires the Trust to issue a fresh response to the request which does not rely on section 12 of the FOIA.
