Mr Coe asked the Minister for Planning and Land Management, upon notice, on 11 May 2018:

(1) For each FOI request identified as pending in the Justice and Community Safety Directorate Annual Report 2016-17, by each directorate and government agency for which you are responsible, what (a) was the month and year the request was received, (b) was the month and year the request was finalised, or whether the request is still pending.

(2) If any requests have been identified as pending in part (1), (a) what were the reasons for delay in finalising the request and (b) when are they expected to be finalised.

Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

The Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate has determined that the number of FOI’s for which decisions were pending at year end 2016-17, as reflected in Justice and Community Safety Directorate Annual Report 2016-17, was incorrectly stated. The actual number of pending FOI’s at year end was 8, not 13 as reflected in the report.

Additionally, 2 pending FOI requests held by LDA and 2 held by CMTEDD were transferred to EPSDD on 1 July 2017.
