Banks and Queensland Corrective Services Commission
(1993 S0045, 13 April 1995)
This was an application by a prisoner to amend information that he had earlier obtained under the FOI Act. The Information Commissioner decided that the information which remained in issue, after the respondent agreed to make a number of compromise amendments, concerned the personal affairs of the applicant. However, the Information Commissioner decided that the information was not inaccurate, incomplete, out-of-date or misleading, and affirmed the decision of the respondent not to amend the information.
In the course of my reasons for decision, the Information Commissioner indicated that an applicant’s right, under Part 4 of the FOI Act, to notate information relating to the applicant’s personal affairs is a right to have the information notated on all copies of the document concerned, which are in the possession or control of the agency concerned.
