Metropolitan Police Service (MPS)

Dear Mr/Ms Khan

Freedom of Information Request Reference No: 2016100000047

I respond in connection with your request for information which was
received by the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) on 01/10/2016.  I note
you seek access to the following information:

Please can you confirm whether Margaret Cassidy House is on Police
Officers' brief, and if so, what is the brief.
The full address for Margaret Cassidy House is: Margaret Cassidy House 485
Bath Road Longford West Drayton Middlesex UB7 0ET Thank you very much.

Please accept this response as an acknowledgement of receipt of your
request, which has been considered under the Freedom of Information Act
2000 (the Act).  

DECISION

The MPS neither confirms nor denies that it holds the information you have
requested as the duty in Section 1(1)(a) of the Act does not apply by
virtue of the Section 40(5) exemption.  This response therefore represents
a Refusal Notice in accordance with Section 17(1) of the Act.  

Please see the legal annex for the sections of the Act that are referred
to in this response.

REASON FOR DECISION

A Freedom of Information Act request is not a private transaction. Both
the request itself, and any information disclosed, are considered suitable
for open publication. This is because, under Freedom of Information, any
information disclosed is released into the wider public domain,
effectively to the world and not just to one individual.

In most cases Personal Data is exempt from disclosure under the Act as I
will explain below.

To confirm or deny whether personal information exists in response to your
request could publicly reveal information about an individual or
individuals, thereby breaching the right to privacy afforded to persons
under the Data Protection Act.

Where an individual is requesting his or her own personal data the
information is always exempt.  Such information can be requested under
other legislation (please see the advice and assistance section below).

Where an individual is requesting third party personal data the MPS must
ensure that any action taken adheres to the principles of the Data
Protection Act 1998.  To clarify, the Freedom of Information Act only
allows disclosure of personal data if that disclosure would be compliant
with the Data Protection Act.

ADVICE AND ASSISTANCE

Please note: If the information requested relates to you (for example if
you are seeking a crime report where you were the victim/witness/suspect)
then you are able to request it via a Subject Access Request.  In order to
make a Subject Access Request please complete form 3019 (available from
any MPS Station, or from
http://content.met.police.uk/Article/Mak...,
or by calling 020 7161 3500 available Mon - Fri between 10:00 and 14:00).
 Please note that proof of identification is required to process a
request. This process may also take up to 40 days from receipt of your
completed application.

This notice does not confirm or deny that the MPS holds the information
that you have requested.

Should you have any further enquiries concerning this matter, please
contact me via email at [email address], quoting the reference
number above.

Yours sincerely

LEGAL ANNEX

Section 17(1) of the Act provides:

(1)        A public authority which, in relation to any request for
information, is to any extent relying on a claim that any provision of
Part II relating to the duty to confirm or deny is relevant to the request
or on a claim that information is exempt information must, within the time
for complying with section 1(1), give the applicant a notice which-

(a) states that fact,
(b) specifies the exemption in question, and
(c) states (if that would not otherwise be apparent) why the exemption
applies.

Section 40(5) of the Act provides:

(5)        The duty to confirm or deny-

(a) does not arise in relation to information which is (or if it were held
by the public authority would be) exempt information by virtue of
subsection (1), and
(b) does not arise in relation to other information if or to the extent
that either-
(i) the giving to a member of the public of the confirmation or denial
that would have to be given to comply with section 1(1)(a) would (apart
from this Act) contravene any of the data protection principles or section
10 of the [1998 c. 29.] Data Protection Act 1998 or would do so if the
exemptions in section 33A(1) of that Act were disregarded, or
(ii) by virtue of any provision of Part IV of the [1998 c. 29.] Data
Protection Act 1998 the information is exempt from section 7(1)(a) of that
