The complainant requested copies of bank statements and cheques from the Council in relation to a particular charity. The Council has not provided a clear response to the request, despite the intervention of the Commissioner. The Commissioner therefore reminds the Council of its obligations under the Act and requires it to respond to the complainant confirming or denying whether information is held. If information is held the Council should either disclose the information to the complainant or issue a valid refusal notice under section 17 of the Act.
