March 3, 2021 | 0 Comments

After an applicant asked the Cabinet Office for records relating to Savvy Entertainment, the Information Commissioner has issued a decision that “finds that the Cabinet Office failed to decide the Applicant’s request for an internal review within the statutory timeframe” and the Information Commissioner has “ordered the Cabinet Office to comply with the requirement to issue a decision on the request for an internal review.”

While the nature of the exact PATI request filed is not stated, Savvy Entertainment is the company who got the $800,000 ‘loan’ from Government, and as of last check, the loan has not been paid back.

“Because the Cabinet Office did not issue an internal review decision during the Information Commissioner’s review, it is ordered by the Information Commissioner to conduct an internal review and issue its decision within four weeks of Decision 02/2021.

“Failure to decide investigations and decisions by the Information Commissioner help to ensure that public authorities respond to all PATI requests and abide by the timelines for doing so as outlined in the PATI Act.”
