Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50249263
  • Date: 3 December 2009
  • Public Authority: London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority
  • Summary: The complainant requested all the recorded information the public authority had about its handling of a specified fire at a specific location. The public authority provided some information and relied on section 40(2) to withhold some other information including the audio tape of the call about it. The Commissioner was asked to consider seven aspects by the complainant and found as follows. For four aspects the public authority informed the complainant that it did not hold relevant recorded information and the Commissioner is satisfied that it did not do so at the time of the request. For three aspects the public authority has applied section 40(2). It released information for two of those aspects during the Commissioner’s investigation. The Commissioner has divided the outstanding redactions into three distinct items. He has found that section 40(2) has been applied correctly in this case to the outstanding information. The Commissioner has found procedural breaches of sections 10(1), 17(1) and 17(1)(c) in this case, but he does not require any remedial steps to be taken in this case.
