The complainant requested information from the Home Office about its contacts with The Queen’s grandchildren, Zara Tindall MBE and Peter Phillips, about a named businessman. The Home Office refused to confirm or deny holding information within the scope of the request. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Home Office was entitled to rely on section 40(5B) (personal information) of the FOIA to neither confirm nor deny holding the requested information. The Commissioner requires no steps to be taken as a result of this decision.
