Lincolnshire County Council (Decision Notice): ICO 14 Dec 2009

The complainant requested the date and venue of a Vulnerable Adult Multi-Agency Case Conference that took place in March 2008 in relation to a named individual. The Council refused to confirm or deny whether it held information falling within the scope of the request and cited the exemption under section 40(5)(b)(i) of the Act. The Commissioner finds that confirming or denying whether the requested information is held would disclose personal data and would breach the first data protection principle. Therefore the Commissioner is satisfied that the Council correctly applied section 40(5)(b)(i) of the Act and no further steps are required. Information Tribunal appeal EA/2009/0036 withdrawn.
Section of Act/EIR and Finding: FOI 40 – Complaint Not upheld
