Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50124180
  • Date: 24 September 2008
  • Public Authority: Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service
  • Summary: The complainant requested all information held by the public authority relating to the discovery of a body in January 2006. The public authority initially refused the request under section 32 (court records) and stated that all relevant information had been passed to the Coroner. Following the intervention of the Commissioner, the public authority issued a reconsidered response in which it refused the request under sections 30 (investigations), 38 (health and safety), 40 (personal information) and 44 (statutory prohibition). The Commissioner finds that the public authority was correct in refusing the request under section 30. As this applies to the information falling within the scope of the request in its entirety, no conclusion was formed in relation to the other exemptions cited by the public authority.
