Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50132169
  • Date: 26 July 2007
  • Public Authority: City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council
  • Summary: The complainant requested information from the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council (the Council) relating to a consultation exercise it had carried out on the structure of parish councils. The Council supplied some of the information requested however withheld some of it on the grounds that the section 40 (personal information) exemption applied. The Commissioner has decided that the Council was correct to apply section 40 to some parts of the withheld information, but not to others. As the Council has now provided the complainant with all of the information to which the Commissioner believes he is entitled, it is not required to take any further steps in respect of this complaint. An appeal was made to the Information Tribunal, but the appeal was dismissed.
