Bbc (Decision Notice): ICO 10 Mar 2014

The complainant has requested figures for the 12 month period prior to the change in policy for the Media Player requests and BBC iPlayer Downloads requests. The BBC explained the information was covered by the derogation and excluded from FOIA. The Commissioner’s decision is that this information was held by the BBC for the purposes of ‘journalism, art or literature’ and did not fall inside FOIA. He therefore upholds the BBC’s position and requires no remedial steps to be taken in this case.
Section of Act/EIR and Finding: FOI 1 – Complaint Not upheld
