The complainant has requested numbers of police officers who were employed with pre-existing drink driving convictions from the Metropolitan Police Service (the ‘MPS’). The MPS advised that to confirm or deny whether or not it holds any information would exceed the cost limit at section 12(2) of the FOIA. The Commissioner’s decision is that the MPS was entitled to rely on section 12(2) and she also finds no breach of section 16(1) (advice and assistance). No steps are required.
