Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50160725
  • Date: 15 December 2008
  • Public Authority: The Governing Body of Garforth Community College
  • Summary: The complainant requested information relating to 3 teachers and a governor of the public authority. The public authority refused to provide a full response citing Section 14(2) (Repeated request) in relation to one part of the request and Section 14(1) (Vexatious request) in relation to the other part of the request. The Commissioner has decided that the public authority correctly cited Section 14(1) and Section 14(2) as its basis for not providing a full response to the request. However, the public authority failed to respond to the complainant within 20 working days as required by Section 17(5) of the Act where a public authority seeks to rely on Section 14 as its basis for refusing a request. No steps are required.
