Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50083202 and FS50134623
  • Date: 16 January 2008
  • Public Authority: House of Commons
  • Summary: The complainant asked for full details, including receipts and invoices, of spending by Tony Blair, John Prescott, Gordon Brown, Michael Howard, Charles Kennedy and Jonathan Sayeed during the year 2003 – 2004. The House of Commons refused the request on the grounds that it is the personal data of the MPs concerned and that disclosure would be unfair and present a security risk. The Commissioner decided that although the information is the personal data of the named MP’s and a number of other third parties disclosure of some of the information would not be unfair and therefore would not breach section 40(2) of the Act.
