Lewisham London Borough Council
10 May 2017, Local government (Borough council)
The complainant requested from the London Borough of Lewisham (“the council”) information concerning its No Recourse to Public Funds (“NRPF”) training material, guidance and other related documents. The Council disclosed some information but withheld other information under section 36(2)(c). It also advised the complainant that it does not hold versions 1 and 2 of the NRPF guidance, only version 3 which was disclosed in a redacted format. Commencing with versions 1 and 2 of the NRPF guidance, the Commissioner has concluded that, on the balance of probabilities, the council no longer holds this information. Therefore, in relation to this aspect of the complainant’s request, no further action is required. In terms of the application of section 36(2)(c), the Commissioner’s decision is that this exemption is not engaged. She therefore requires the council to disclose the information withheld under this exemption.
