Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50176916
  • Date: 24 August 2009
  • Public Authority: British Transport Police Authority
  • Summary: The complainant made a request to the British Transport Police Authority (BTPA) for an electronic copy of an economic model used in the calculation of the cost of the services provided by British Transport Police, together with all the underlying data used to populate the model. The BTPA refused the request on the basis that the model was not information held for the purposes of the Act. During the course of the Commissioner’s investigation, the BTPA accepted that it holds information for the purposes of the Act, releasing some information to the complainant but withholding the remainder under section 43(2). The Commissioner does not find this exemption engaged and requires that the information be disclosed to the complainant. He also finds breaches of sections 1(1)(b), 10(1), 17(1)(b) and (c) and 17(7).
