ICO upholds FOI decision by Estyn

ICO press release: 30 May 2007
"The Information Commissioner’s Office ruled that the public authority was right to neither confirm nor deny whether it holds information relating to alleged complaints made against two named officers of the public authority.

The public authority correctly cited an exemption for personal information. In this case the public authority did not have to confirm or deny the existence of the information as by doing so it would suggest that complaints had been received and this would breach people’s privacy."
