Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50104386
  • Date: 19 September 2006
  • Public Authority: HM Treasury
  • Summary: The complainant requested all information provided to HM Treasury by the Department of Health concerning an announcement made in the budget statement of 2 July 1997 of the intention to recoup from insurers the full cost of treating road accident victims. The public authority stated that no such information was held. Following his investigation, the Commissioner has found that the public authority failed to respond to the information request within 20 working days. This breach does not necessitate remedial action. The Commissioner has found no evidence that would suggest that the information requested is held by the public authority and does not, therefore, find any breach of Part 1 of the Act in this regard. This case was under appeal to the Information Tribunal and has since been withdrawn.
