Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50075781
  • Date: 7 August 2007
  • Public Authority: Financial Services Authority
  • Summary: The complainant requested that the Financial Services Authority (FSA) provide him with the names of any companies it had identified by it as using inappropriate charges in setting premiums when selling endowment mortgages. The FSA refused the request on the grounds that exemptions under section 31 (law enforcement), section 43 (commercial interests) and section 44 (statutory prohibition) applied. The Commissioner's decision is that the exemptions under sections 31 and 44 of the Act do not apply. He has also decided that the exemption under section 43 is applicable, but the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs that of maintaining the exemption. This Decision Notice is currently under appeal to the Information Tribunal.
