Information Tribunal

A little bit more information about the information tribunal: the Bridgnorth case (see previous post) was heard on paper, the Barber v Information Commissioner was heard on Friday of last week(October 14th) before John Angel sitting with 2 lay members, in London. Judgment was reserved.

Will be interesting to find out the reasons behind cases being heard on paper or orally.

Also interesting- you can match case nos from the ICO to the cases listed at the Information Tribunal site. E.g. from here you can deduce the Barber case relates to:

Case Ref: FS50067001
Date: 16/5/05

Summary: Complainant requested information regarding action taken by the Inland Revenue concerning specific instances of alleged failed standards.
