MoD wrist slapped by ICO for bad FOI

On 13 August 2009 the Ministry of Defence got its wrist slapped by the Information Commissioner's office and ordered to "improve its handling of internal reviews and ensure its standard completion target for internal reviews conforms to guidance issued under the Freedom of Information  Act".

The ICO even issued a new practice recommendation especially for the MOD, "Freedom of Information Act 2000 (Section 48) Practice Recommendation Date 10 August 2009".
