The complainant has requested information about the decision by Lancashire County Council to withhold reimbursement payments to a bus company. The Council responded that all held information had been previously disclosed in 2012, and that some outstanding information was withheld under section 41. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Council has failed to fully consider and respond to the request in accordance with the FOIA. The Commissioner requires the public authority to take the following steps to ensure compliance with the legislation: Undertake fresh searches for recorded information that would fall within the parameters of the request, and issue a fresh response that complies with the terms of the FOIA.
