Gifts to the Speakers Office (2015)

Request

  1. The number of gifts donated to the speaker's office over the past three calendar years?
  2. The details for each of the item donated, its value, date of donation and name of donor?

 

Response

A breakdown of gifts given to the Speaker’s Office from April 2008 to 22 April 2013 is already publicly available on the parliamentary website.

Information about gifts given to the Speaker’s Office from 23 April 2008 to 1 October 2014 is already publicly available on the parliamentary website.

As the information up to 1 October 2014 is reasonably accessible to you other than under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) your request is refused. In refusing your request the House is applying the exemption set out in section 21 (1) and (2) (a) of the FOIA.  This is an absolute exemption and the public interest test does not apply.

Details of gifts donated to the Speaker’s Office from 2 October 2014 to 6 July 2015.
