Dear Palmer Dave Mr (LIB),

You say:
"
s.12(1), Appropriate limit exceeded

The time it would take to extract the information would exceed the appropriate limit
"

I should have thought that a computer search through the archives should be easy enough and that it should not take too long.

"s.31(1)(a) & (b), Disclosure would prejudice detection of crime & the apprehension of criminals

Information is held by the police in connection with an ongoing criminal investigation
"

I cannot see how the disclosure of this information would hamper the police investigation.

"
s.40(1), Personal information

Release of personal information would contravene the data protection principles
"

Not if it was redacted it wouldn't.

Yours sincerely,

John Walker

Palmer Dave Mr (LIB), University of East Anglia

The University is closed 24 December 2009 to 3 January 2010 inclusive. I will deal with all correspondence upon my return to the office on Monday 4 January 2010.
