Gadsby and Queensland Health (Department of Health)
(1996 S0092, 13 September 1996) 

This was a 'sufficiency of search' case which the Information Commissioner approached according to the principles set out in  Shepherd and Department of Housing, Local Government & Planning (1994) 1 QAR 464. 

The Information Commissioner determined that there were no reasonable grounds to believe that the respondent held further documents falling within the terms of the initial FOI access application, and that, in any event, the searches made by the respondent had been reasonable in all the circumstances of the case.
