Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50165472
  • Date: 31 March 2009
  • Public Authority: BBC
  • Summary: The complainant asked the British Broadcasting Corporation (the BBC) for information about the number of TV licenses that were collected for a number of specific addresses in his immediate neighbourhood, including his own. The public authority withheld the information, citing the exemption contained in sections 40 (1) and (2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (“the Act”). The BBC confirmed to the requester that, under the Data Protection Act 1998 (“the DPA”), it was required to supply them with their personal information and would do so upon payment of an administration fee.
