ICO The complainant has requested the ICO to disclose a copy of the briefing notes to Lord Turner, which were supplied to the ICO by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in relation to an earlier complaint the complainant had made to the ICO under section 50 of the FOIA. The ICO responded refusing to disclose this information under section 44(1)(a) of the FOIA, by virtue of section 59(1) of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA). The Commissioner’s decision in this case is that the ICO has correctly applied section 44(1)(a) of the FOIA to the requested information. The Commissioner therefore does not require any further action to be taken.
