Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50178905
  • Date: 4 November 2009
  • Public Authority: Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency
  • Summary: The complainant requested various information from the DVLA regarding its Continuous Registration (CR) scheme. The DVLA provided much of the information but withheld some on the basis of section 31(1)(d) and section 21 of the Act. It also refused some information on the basis that it was not held. Following intervention from the Commissioner, the DVLA provided part of the information it had previously withheld by virtue of section 31(1)(d) but continued to withhold the remainder of the information on the basis of this exemption. The Commissioner finds that following his intervention, the DVLA applied the section 31(1)(d) exemption correctly and based on the balance of probabilities it does not hold the information refused on this basis of ‘information not held’. This decision notice is currently under appeal to the Information Tribunal.
