Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50238979
  • Date: 25 June 2009
  • Public Authority: Brent Council
  • Summary: The complainant made a number of requests to Brent Council for information relating to complaints against it and their outcomes as well as its expenditure. The public authority refused the request on the basis of the provisions of section 14(1) of Freedom of Information Act 2000, (the Act) stating that the request was vexatious. The Commissioner has considered the public authority’s grounds for deciding that the request was vexatious and has concluded that it was correct in its application of section 14(1) of the Act. However he did find the public authority in breach of section 17(5) of the Act in failing to provide a compliant refusal notice within 20 working days of the request. This decision notice is currently under appeal to the Information Tribunal.
