Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50118463
  • Date: 12 December 2006
  • Public Authority: Greater Manchester Police
  • Summary: The complainant submitted a request to the public authority for a large file containing information relating to him and to court proceedings that took place in the 1970s and 1980s. Having conducted a search of its records the public authority advised the complainant that it did not hold this information. The public authority explained that if the information had been held it was likely that it would have been destroyed a number of years ago due to the time that had elapsed since the events to which the request related took place. Having considered the information available the Commissioner is satisfied that the information requested by the complainant is not held by the public authority.
