The Real Estate Office and Department of Lands
(1995 S0172, 30 October 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 and Planning (1994) 1 QAR 464.  The Information Commissioner determined that, following the location of additional documents in the course of my review, 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.
