Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50126668
  • Date: 26 March 2007
  • Public Authority: Information Commissioner
  • Summary: The complainant requested copies of all documentation sent by an individual in relation to a complaint made about the complainant to the Information Commissioner under the terms of the Data Protection Act (the “DPA”). The complainant further requested an explanation regarding payments made by the Commissioner to individuals relating to the same DPA complaint. The Commissioner refused the first part of the request on the basis that section 44 of the Freedom of Information Act applied as section 59 of the DPA provided statutory prohibition on disclosure. The complainant received an answer to the second part of the request. This Decision Notice does not uphold the complaint made and concludes that the exemption has been applied correctly.
