The complainant has requested information about the loss of 13 murder files from the Metropolitan Police Service (the ‘MPS’). The MPS refused to provide the information citing sections 30(1)(a) (investigations and proceedings), 38(1)(a) (health and safety) and 40(2) (personal information) of the FOIA. The Commissioner’s decision is that the MPS was entitled to rely on section 38(1)(a) of the FOIA to withhold the requested information. No steps are required.
