House of Commons (Decision Notice): ICO 16 Oct 2013

ICO The complainant requested a list of Freemasons working in the Houses of Parliament. Other than a voluntary disclosure via the Register of Financial Interests where MPs may optionally declare membership of the Freemasons as an unremunerated interest, the House of Commons said it did not otherwise collect or hold the requested information. The Information Commissioner’s decision is that the HOC, on the balance of probabilities, does not hold the requested information. He therefore does not require the HOC to take any steps.
Section of Act/EIR and Finding: FOI 1 – Complaint Not upheld
