Financial Services Authority (Decision Notice): ICO 26 Mar 2013

The complainant has requested information about Financial Services Authority (FSA) enquiries into an overseas property investment scheme run by [named company]. The FSA refused to provide the requested information under section 40(2), section 42, section 43(2) and section 44(1)(a) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA). The Commissioner’s decision is that the FSA has correctly applied section 40(2), section 43(2) and section 44(1)(a) FOIA to withhold some of the requested information. As section 42 FOIA was applied to the same information as section 44(1)(a) FOIA, the Commissioner did not consider the application of section 42 FOIA any further. However there is some information to which no exemptions have been applied. The Commissioner requires the public authority to comply with section 1 FOIA in relation to the information to which no exemptions have been applied. These are the parts of the withheld information which were provided to the Commissioner, which were not marked with exemptions.
Section of Act/EIR and Finding: FOI 1 – Complaint Partly Upheld, FOI 40 – Complaint Not upheld, FOI 43 – Complaint Not upheld, FOI 44 – Complaint Not upheld
