Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FAC0064577
  • Date: 20 June 2005
  • Public Authority: Norfolk Constabulary
  • Summary: The complainant requested information on the cost to Norfolk Constabulary of providing security for a former Prime Minister and alleged that the information had been withheld. Originally the Constabulary relied on exemptions relating to law enforcement and health and safety to refuse the request. However, the request was for information on the cost to the Constabulary of providing security. Since the actual cost was met by the Home Office and the cost to the Constabulary was therefore nil, the Constabulary did not, in fact, hold any recorded information on the cost to themselves. Consequently, the Decision Notice stated that there was not a breach of section 1 of the Act.
