Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50076626
  • Date: 10 June 2005
  • Public Authority: Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs
  • Summary: Complainant requested information used in order to determine his council tax band. The VOA had provided this on several occasions previously and the complainant was in fact disputing the information used to calculate the band. However, the FOI Act does not give the ICO powers to investigate the quality of information held by public authorities. Given that the VOA did not respond in 20 working days, the Decision Notice was issued without steps. The Information Tribunal has ruled on this decision and has dismissed this appeal.
