Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50128700
  • Date: 22 January 2007
  • Public Authority: Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency
  • Summary: A request for information was made on 20 January 2005 and the public authority responded on 16 March 2005. The public authority’s response provided some information, redacted some information under section 40 of the Act, and withheld some information under section 42. The complainant disputed the application of the section 42 exemption and did not accept that all the information held by the public authority had been provided. The Commissioner accepted that the public authority had provided all the information it held, except for that which it withheld under the exemptions. The Commissioners decision is to uphold the section 42 exemption. He finds that the public authority breached section 10 of the Act in that its response was outside the twenty day time limit.
