Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50133140
  • Date: 11 December 2008
  • Public Authority: BBC
  • Summary: The complainant’s information request to the BBC was for the equivalent geographic telephone number for each of its non-geographic telephone numbers. The BBC said it held some but not all of the requested information; of the information it did hold, sections 38 (health and safety) and/or 43(2) (commercial interest) of the Act exempted it from disclosure. The Commissioner’s decision is that the BBC held some but not all of the requested information. Regarding the information held by the BBC, sections 38 and 43 (2) of the Act were not engaged and therefore it should be communicated to the complainant. The Commissioner also concluded that the BBC breached sections 1(1)(b), 10(1) and 17(1).
