UK Agencies Agree on the Handling of Information Requests in National Security Cases

The UK Information Commissioner and the Secretary of State for Justice have entered into Memoranda of Understanding on the handling of information requests in relation to national security cases under the UK’s Data Protection Act, Freedom of Information Act and Environmental Information Regulations. The new Memoranda set out guidelines as to how the Information Commissioner’s office and government departments will cooperate with one another in cases where a government department refrains from disclosing information to an individual, or the ICO, on the basis of national security.
