The complainant has requested information about an alleged investigation from the Metropolitan Police Service (the “MPS”). The MPS would neither confirm nor deny holding any information, citing the exemptions at sections 30(3) (Investigations and proceedings) and 40(5) (Personal information) of the FOIA. The Commissioner’s decision is that the MPS was entitled to rely on section 40(5) to neither confirm nor deny holding the requested information. No steps are required.
