Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50194514
  • Date: 11 June 2009
  • Public Authority: Department for Transport
  • Summary: The complainant made a request to the Department for Transport (DfT) on 11 January 2008 for information which recorded the Traffic Management Team’s comments sent to Rosie Winterton MP on his 2,500 word paper entitled Traffic Management. From January 2005 up until this request being made the complainant submitted a total of 67 requests to the DfT relating to issues surrounding traffic management. Taking into account correspondence leading up to the request on 11 January 2008, the DfT deemed this request vexatious under section 14(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the “Act”). The Commissioner has considered this request in the context and background in which it was made and has decided that the DfT applied the Act correctly in refusing to comply with the request under section 14(1) of the Act.
