Department of Health (Decision Notice): ICO 11 Mar 2014

ICO The complainant has requested information relating to the forfeited pensions under the NHS Pension Scheme Regulations. The Department of Health refused to disclose the information, citing section 40(2) (third party personal data) of the FOIA as its basis for doing so. Following an internal review, the Department disclosed some of the previously withheld information but maintained its position on the remainder. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Department of Health is correct to withhold the information under section 40(2). The Commissioner does not require the public authority to take any further action.
