Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50200695
  • Date: 19 November 2009
  • Public Authority: Thames Valley Police
  • Summary: The complainant made a five part request for information about chemical, biological, radiation and nuclear (CBRN) suits. Some of the information was disclosed, but the remaining information was withheld under the exemptions at sections 24(1) (national security) and 31(1) (law enforcement) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the “Act”). The Commissioner’s decision is that the exemption at section 24(1) is engaged and that the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs that in disclosure. The exemption at section 31(1) has therefore not been further considered. The complaint is not upheld.
