My 2¾ year saga trying to discover the farm related to the number printed on eggs continues despite a ruling by the Information Tribunal on 14th November that Defra should produce a redacted list. The list produced was dated August 2005 because of ‘FOIA rules’ despite my requirement for a current list. Defra are treating my requirement for a current list as a new inquiry under the FOIA. The list was also missing Scotland and Northern Ireland. Defra claimed they did not have the information despite it being a requirement of an EU directive. So, I am now in the process of asking the Scottish & Northern Irish governments for the information, this time based upon my knowledge of the EU Directive.
Is the Scottish Government bound by Information Tribunal rulings? Who do I appeal to when my request is not satisfied? Is it the Scottish Information Commissioner? Where does Northern Ireland fit in?
