Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50186040
  • Date: 23 November 2009
  • Public Authority: Metropolitan Police Service
  • Summary: The complainant requested information consisting of the VRM numbers of all VW Golfs and VW Golf R32s that were stolen and recovered in the Metropolitan Police district in the calendar year 2006. The public authority replied that section 40(2) (Personal information of third parties) applied to this information and that it was not prepared to disclose the information. The Commissioner has determined that the public authority was correct to apply section 40(2) to the VRM numbers of cars owned by individuals and sole traders, but not to the VRM numbers of cars owned by commercial entities that are not sole traders. The Commissioner has considered the public authority’s application of section 12(1) for the remaining information and finds that it cannot be relied upon. The failure to provide the remaining information is a breach of section 1(1)(b) and section 10(1). The Commissioner therefore requires the VRM numbers of cars owned by commercial entities to be disclosed. This decision notice is currently under appeal to the Information Tribunal.This decision notice is currently under appeal to the Information Tribunal.
