Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50194701
  • Date: 24 November 2009
  • Public Authority: House of Lords Appointments Commission
  • Summary: The complainant asked the House of Lords Appointments Commission (HLAC) whether Lord Clement-Jones had proposed, nominated, seconded or supported any individual’s nomination for the peerage. The HLAC interpreted this request as seeking information about all candidates other than Lord Hameed who was the subject of another request submitted by the complainant. The complainant was content with this interpretation of the request. The HLAC refused to confirm or deny whether it held information falling within the scope of this request citing the exemptions contained at sections 37(2) (conferring of an honour), 40(5)(b)(i) (personal data) and 41(2) (information provided in confidence) of the Act. The Commissioner has concluded that the HLAC were correct to rely on section 40(5)(b)(i) as basis upon which to refuse to confirm or deny whether it held any information falling within the scope of this request.
