Latest OIA, and first set of LGOIMA data, released by the Ombudsman
The Chief Ombudsman Peter Boshier has released his latest OIA data, and, for the first time, the equivalent data for the LGOIMA.
The number of OIA complaints received by the Office of the Ombudsman in the six months from 1 January to 30 June 2019 was 693, a decrease of 30 (4.1%) from the previous six months. The number of LGOIMA complaints was 165.
After removing a statistical anomaly from the previous data, the Office resolved 30 more complaints than it received for the OIA, and 13 fewer for the LGOIMA.
