Freedom of Information statistics January to March 2006

Now live on the DCA FOI site: The fifth quarterly report providing statistics on implementation of the Act across central government covers January to March 2006. The trends are very much in line with previous stats, the figure of quoted by the DCA of 90% of requests being responded to "in time" (i.e. meeting deadline or with permitted extension) needs to compared with 83% being within the 20 working day deadline. The DCA tend to use the 90% rather than the 83% as the headline figure. We also don't have any data about the length of these extended deadlines. (permitted under the FOIA to consider the public interest S10(3))
