Charity Commission (Decision Notice): ICO 19 Dec 2007

ICO The complainant wrote to the Charity Commission (‘the public authority’) seeking a copy of a draft report produced by the Independent Complaints Reviewer (the ICR) into complaints concerning the public authority. Those complaints related to its handling of an application made by the complainant for a declaration of charitable status. The public authority refused the request as it considered that the information contained in the draft report was exempt under section 41 of the Act. The Commissioner finds that the public authority has correctly applied the section 41 exemption in this case. However, the Commissioner finds that the public authority delayed in responding to the request and therefore has breached sections 10 and 17 of the Act.
Section of Act/EIR and Finding: FOI 10 – Complaint Upheld, FOI 17 – Complaint Upheld, FOI 41 – Complaint Not upheld
