Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50100892
  • Date: 30 July 2007
  • Public Authority: Ministry of Justice
  • Summary: The complainant submitted a request to the Tribunal Service (an executive agency of the Ministry of Justice) for information about the relationship between the ethnicity of claimants who submitted applications to the Employment Tribunal Service and the outcome of each claimant’s case. The public authority refused the request on the basis that it did not hold the information requested. The Commissioner has concluded that whilst the public authority did not hold any researched statistics which could have been used to answer the request in full, he believes that the public authority did hold some raw data which fell within the scope of the request. However, the Commissioner accepts that to provide this information would have exceeded the appropriate cost limit.
