- Case Ref: FS50126388
- Date: 16 May 2007
- Public Authority: Ealing London Borough Council
- Summary: The complainant requested information relating to the adoption of executive arrangements under the Local Government Act 2000 (LGA). She specifically requested certain details about the publicity in local newspapers and whether a formal resolution was passed under section 29 of the LGA. The public authority advised that it no longer holds the details of the publicity and that it was considering whether it held information concerning whether a formal resolution was passed under section 29 (3) of the LGA. Although the complainant provided clarification that she required information about a formal resolution under section 29 (1) of the LGA, following internal review, the public authority advised that it had been unable to identify any information concerning whether a formal resolution was passed under section 29 (3) of the LGA. Following the Commissioner’s intervention, the public authority confirmed that it had passed a formal resolution under section 29 (1) of the LGA and supplied a copy of the relevant minutes. The Commissioner therefore considers that the public authority breached section 1 of the FOIA. He found no evidence to suggest that the requested details of the publicity are still held by the public authority and does not find any breach of section 1 of the FOIA in this regard.
