  • Public Authority: House of Commons
  • Summary: The complainant made a request to the House of Commons for information concerning plans to produce a portrait, photograph or sculpture of the Rt Hon Gordon Brown MP.

The Commissioner has decided that the House of Commons was correct to withhold the requested information and therefore he requires no further action to be taken in relation to this request. The Commissioner has recorded a minor procedural breach of the Act.
