The complainant requested information relating to the lawfulness, or otherwise, of Bulking Centres and Council Tax Liability hearings. The Commissioner’s decision is that the request is vexatious and the MoJ was entitled to apply section 14(1) of the FOIA to refuse the request. She also considers that the MoJ was not obliged to issue a refusal notice in respect of the request, in accordance with section 17(6) of the FOIA. The Commissioner requires no steps to be taken as a result of this decision.
