Courts: Enforcement Officers Guidance

Volume 687: debated on Tuesday 28 November 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What response the Department for Constitutional Affairs is making to the representations from the Zacchaeus 2000 Trust for an internal review of the decision of HM Courts Service to refuse to release a copy of the enforcement officers guidance; and what actions are now being considered. [HL28]

In accordance with our responsibilities under the Freedom of Information Act, my department is conducting an internal review of the decision that the guidance, or part of it, should be withheld. Once the review, which can take up to six weeks, has been completed, the outcome will be communicated to the applicant.
