Case Note 0107 [1994] – Department of Social Welfare refused complainant’s access to his file in its entirety

The complainant asked me to investigate the refusal of the Department of Social Welfare to allow him access to his file in its entirety. The Department had provided the complainant with access to his file but did not allow him to see the original version of some of the pages. Instead the complainant was provided with a typed copy of one page and a photocopy of another page which omitted identifying information about the person who had provided the information in these documents.
