FOI 1921 - Fleet list and Sold Vehicles

Please can you supply me with the following information?

Registration number: Under GDPR regulations I am not able to provide you with the Registration numbers for these vehicles.

Make and Model of all vehicles currently on your fleet list and all vehicles sold between 14/11/2022 - 05/09/2023

 Vehicles sold between the period 14/11/2022 - 05/09/2023 are:

  • 1. Vauxhall Corsa Qty 4

  • Land Rover Freelander Qty 3

  • Citroen Berlingo Qty 4

  • Land Rover Range Rover Qty 1


Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 requires the Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service, when refusing to provide such information (because the information is exempt) to provide you with a notice which a) states that fact, b) specifies the exemption in question and c) states (if that would not otherwise be apparent) why the exemption applies: 

After careful consideration I am able to confirm that the vehicle registration numbers of any vehicles sold are exempt by virtue of Section 40 (2) of the act (as amended by Schedule 19 of the Data Protection Act 2018). 

The information you have requested may directly or indirectly identify an individual and is therefore the personal data of a third party (as defined by the GDPR (a4.1) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (s3.2)). Releasing this personal data would be likely to contravene the first data protection principle (as defined by the GDPR (a5) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (s35)). This is an absolute exemption therefore neither the public interest test nor evidence of harm in disclosure needs to be outlined.
