ICO The complainant wrote to Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council (the Council) and requested information regarding schools and general information held by the Council about accidents, complaints, grievances, disciplinary action and suspension of staff and pupils. The Council refused the request under section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the Act) as it estimated the cost of complying with the request would exceed the appropriate cost limit. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Council is correct to refuse the request under section 12. No further action is required.
