Dear Sirs

I acknowledge and thank you for your invitation for me to join the Covid Public Inquiry  (PI) as a Core Participant. I fervently do believe the Information Commissioner (IC) has acted in concert with several PAs to prevent and obstruct any members of the public wishing to submit a FOIA request relating to Covid 19.

The Cabinet Office and NHS have refused hundreds of refusals to the FOIA requests under the Dransfield Vexatious Court Precedent under section 14 of the FOIA 2000.

I would like to send the PI 1/2 dozen of such ICO Decision Notices for your perusal and consideration for selection  of Core Participant.

The nature of the fraud is the Public Authority will receive a FOIA request and refuse it under section 14 of the FOIA 2000 and then the FOI requester appeals to the ICO, who then uphold the Vexatious Decision Notice. For clarity there are numerous PAs Nationwide actively involved with Covid 19. I hope this meets with your approval.

With thanks

Yours sincerely 

Alan M Dransfield
