In relation to when each statutory function was last reviewed and the outcome of that review, the request is refused under Article 16 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011, namely that the cost of providing the information would exceed the fee prescribed by Regulation 2(1) of the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014 that allows an authority to refuse a request for information where the estimated cost of dealing with the request would exceed the specified amount of the cost limit of £500. This is the estimated cost of one person spending 12.5 working hours in determining whether the department holds the information, locating, retrieving and extracting the information.
