(471) FIRST INFORMATION COMMISSIONER DECISION
The first decision by the Scottish Information Commissioner under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) was issued on 17 May 2005. In it, the Commissioner explains his decision to uphold the applicant’s complaint about Lothian and Borders Safety Camera Partnership’s handling of his request for a safety camera calibration certificate. The information was only provided to the applicant after he had applied to the Commissioner for a decision. The Commissioner found that the authority did not deal with the applicant’s request for information in accordance with Part 1 of FOISA. In his decision the Commissioner sets out a number of steps the authority should take to conform with the provisions of the Act.
