  • Summary: The complainant requested details of items seized by HMRC at Bristol airport, Avonmouth and Portbury docks for the financial years 2004/05 and 2005/06.

Having reviewed the withheld information the Commissioner has decided that HMRC appropriately relied upon section 31 when refusing the information.
