Stewart and Minister for Transport
(1994 S0071, 16 May 1995) 

This case involved similar 'sufficiency of search' issues to Stewart and Department of Transport (1995) 2 QAR 532 and the Information Commissioner made corresponding findings. 

The Information Commissioner also discussed (at paragraphs 10-16) the distinction between 'documents of an agency' and 'official documents of a Minister', noting that a Minister may hold documents on a particular subject not held by the Minister’s department.
