Kirkham v The Information Commissioner: [2018] UKUT 303 (AAC)

Upper Tribunal Administrative Appeals Chamber decision by Judge Wright on 14 September 2018.

Read the full decision in GIA/877/2018.

Judicial Summary

strike out of application for permission to appeal made to the Upper Tribunal – no reasonable prospects of success – refusal of ICO to accelerate making her decision on complaint is not a ‘decision’ for the purposes of section 50(3)(b) of FOIA - FtT was therefore entirely right in striking out the appeal to it from that refusal to accelerate ‘decision’ on the ground of lack of jurisdiction
