The complainant requested information about mortgage possession claims and related details broken down by specified criteria in a five-part request. The Ministry of Justice (the ‘MOJ’) ultimately refused to provide the information for parts 1-4 of the request by virtue of section 44(1)(a) (prohibitions on disclosure) and said it did not hold the information requested in part 5. The complainant subsequently advised that he was only concerned with the MOJ’s reliance on section 44 of the FOIA. The Commissioner’s decision is that the MOJ was entitled to rely on section 44(1)(a) for parts 1-4 of the request for the reasons set out in this notice. She does not require the MOJ to take any steps as a result of this notice.
