DWP - Refusing a Subject Access Request

edited January 17 in Ask a benefits advisor
Hi all,

long and protracted issue issue but I am of the belief I am being unjustifiably targeted/harassed by the DWP, which culminated in the DWP initiating an investigation into my personal circumstance which was then escalated to the Counter Fraud and Compliance Directorate (whom when completing said investigation advised there was no merit in the DWP’s investigation and I had no case to answer).

i therefore put in a Subject Access Request with the DWP requesting all information that pertained to the investigation. I have now received a response starting that under Section 7 (6) a of the Data Protection Act this information can be withheld from disclosure.

Can anyone advise where I stand with regards to obtaining this information.

Kind regards
