Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50194062
  • Date: 2 March 2010
  • Public Authority: National Savings and Investments
  • Summary: The complainant requested from National Savings and Investments (“the public authority”) Premium Bond statistical information for each monthly draw from 1st January 1997 to 1st November 2007 that detailed prizes, Bonds and amounts distributed regionally both to customers within the United Kingdom and in reports to Her Majesty’s Treasury. The public authority disclosed some of the information it held, but also withheld some information under section 12(1) of the Act because the costs limit applied. The Commissioner investigated and has considered sections 12, 16 and 17 of the Act. He decided that although section 12(1) was applied correctly by the public authority it breached section 17 of the Act. In relation to section 16, the public authority provided reasonable advice and assistance to the complainant and actually exceeded what was technically expected of it under the Act. The Commissioner requires no steps to be taken by the public authority.
