Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50129885
  • Date: 11 April 2007
  • Public Authority: Commission for Local Administration in England
  • Summary: The complainant requested a copy of a letter which the public authority had received from Wealden District Council in the course of investigating a complaint against this Council. The public authority refused to supply this information because it said that section 32(2) of the Local Government Act 1974 prevented it from disclosing information it had obtained in the course of an investigation. The Commissioner investigated the complaint and is satisfied that section 32(2) of this Act prevents the public authority from disclosing the information requested by the complainant. The Commissioner therefore accepts that the information is exempt under section 44 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
