The complainant has requested copies of minutes and agendas which refers to correspondence with the Information Commissioner’s Office. Potto Parish Council refused the request as vexatious. The Commissioner’s decision is that the request was vexatious and the Parish Council was entitled section 14(1) of the FOIA to refuse it. However, it failed to issue a refusal notice, citing section 14(1) within 20 working days and thus breached section 17(5) of the FOIA. The Commissioner does not require any further steps.
