According to the Ombudsman's guidelines, agencies must respond in the manner requested, unless it would impair efficient administration or undermine the interests protected by the Act. In this case, its impossible to see how a physical-only response could be justified: they're photocopying or printing the response documents anyway, which is (in a modern office) no different from them scanning it or printing to PDF.

This request was delayed originally due to additional consultations required with some parties involved.

Copies of the documents related to this discussions have been requested.

This part of information was denied to be released and subject of current Ombudsman complaint, which took about 2 years to get first feedback (349581). I hope to receive a final response within next 2 years.

All of this documents related to the plans to obtain public funding to build private prison for vulnerable kids by the management of "Care for Kids" trust.
