Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50174841
  • Date: 17 December 2009
  • Public Authority: Department for Transport
  • Summary: The complainant made a request for information to the Department for Transport (the “Department”) concerning policies and procedures for luggage carried airside and risk assessments and reports used to devise the 100ml rule for liquids taken airside. The request was refused under sections 24(1), 31(1)(a) and (b) and 27(1)(a) and (b) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the “Act”). The Commissioner has investigated and considers that the Department was correct to withhold the most detailed information under section 24(1). However, he has also determined that the most general information is not exempt under any of the exemptions cited by the Department and he has therefore ordered disclosure of this information. He has set out, in a confidential schedule to this Decision Notice, the information that the Department is required to disclose. The Commissioner has also noted a number of procedural breaches of the Act. This decision notice is currently under appeal to the Information Tribunal.
