Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50257450
  • Date: 14 December 2009
  • Public Authority: Lincolnshire County Council
  • Summary: The complainant requested the date and venue of a Vulnerable Adult Multi-Agency Case Conference that took place in March 2008 in relation to a named individual. The Council refused to confirm or deny whether it held information falling within the scope of the request and cited the exemption under section 40(5)(b)(i) of the Act. The Commissioner finds that confirming or denying whether the requested information is held would disclose personal data and would breach the first data protection principle. Therefore the Commissioner is satisfied that the Council correctly applied section 40(5)(b)(i) of the Act and no further steps are required. This decision notice is currently under appeal to the Information Tribunal.
