The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office is continuing to review and process a large amount of information that was returned in our searches. We must review all information returned to assess whether it is personal information and, if so, whether any exemptions such as the personal data of third parties apply. Our Information Rights Unit has recently been able to allocate additional resources to help with all such cases, however given the large quantity of information in this case, it is unlikely that we will be in a position to respond before September.
