Government breaking the Law? This will need a full and detailed explanation.
The government has failed to respond to a Freedom Of Information Request we made last month which asked them what had happened to all of its child welfare consultations.
We sent our request on 15th October. The reply was due on or before the 10th November. Unusually, we never received a notification from the FOI website alerting us to the delay.
The government’s failure to respond in time means that they have broken the law. Researching Reform has now launched a review to find out why the request has been ignored.
We’ll update this story as soon as we know more.
