Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50085398
  • Date: 8 August 2006
  • Public Authority: London Metropolitan University
  • Summary: The complainant requested information relating to a degree course he had commenced at the London Metropolitan University in September 1988. The response initially given to the complainant did not meet the requirements of the Act. Following the Commissioner's intervention, the university provided a refusal notice in line with section 17 of the Act and stated that the complainant's requests were, for the most part, vexatious, as all of the information requested had been provided to the complainant previously. The Commissioner agrees that these requests were vexatious. The university had conceded that its initial response fell outside the statutory response time and failed to meet the requirements of section 17. The Information Tribunal has ruled on this decision and has dismissed this appeal.
