The complainant requested details of who recommended five individuals for honours. The Cabinet Office said that it only held information relating to one individual, and refused to disclose that information under section 37(1)(b) (the conferring by the Crown of an honour or dignity). The Commissioner’s decision is that the Cabinet Office does not hold information in respect of four of the five individuals named. The Commissioner also finds that the Cabinet Office was entitled to rely on the exemption at section 37(1)(b) with regard to the withheld information. She does not require any further steps to be taken.
