Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50207235
  • Date: 24 November 2009
  • Public Authority: House of Commons
  • Summary: The complainant sought information about various categories of people issued with Parliamentary passes to the House of Commons (“the House”). The House provided some information but withheld the names of individual pass holders who held passes by virtue of belonging to two organisations named in the request, relying on exemptions in sections 38 (health and safety) and 40 (personal information) of the Act. The Commissioner has concluded that neither section 38(1)(b) nor section 40(2) provides a basis to withhold the information and therefore has ordered the House to disclose this information. In handling this request the Commissioner has also concluded that the House breached sections 1(1)(b) and 10(1) by incorrectly withholding this information.
