Westminster City Council (Local Government): ICO 8 Oct 2021

The complainant submitted a request to Westminster City Council (the Council) seeking information about the replacement of windows at a residential block of flats. The Council responded by stating that it did not hold any information falling within the scope of the request. The complainant disputed this. During the course of the Commissioner’s investigation the Council located some information which was disclosed to the complainant. The Commissioner’s decision is that on the balance of probabilities the Council has now located (and disclosed) all of the information it holds falling within the scope of this request. However, the late disclosure of this information represents a breach of section 10(1) of FOIA.
