Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50170631
  • Date: 24 March 2009
  • Public Authority: Chief Constable of Nottinghamshire Police
  • Summary: The complainant made a request for information relating to police investigations of allegations made against members of staff at Rampton Hospital during the late 1970s. In response to the request the Police issued a fees notice requiring payment of £16,362.50. The Commissioner has determined that the Fees Notice was based on the provisions of section 12 of the Act and not for appropriate charges which could legitimately be made under section 9. The Commissioner finds that Nottinghamshire Police breached the requirements of section 1(1)(b) of the Act. The Commissioner also finds that Nottinghamshire Police breached sections 10 and 17 of the Act by failing to issue a refusal notice subject to section 17 within the time for complying with the request.
