Neutral citation:

[2006] CAT 32


20 Nov 2006



Ruling of the Tribunal in respect of the appellant’s application for disclosure of certain, mainly internal, OFT documents relating to the decision not to pursue an investigation into alleged infringements of the Chapter I prohibition.

The Tribunal rejected the application, finding that there was no basis for ordering disclosure of any of the documents.

The Tribunal was not satisfied that disclosure of the documents was necessary, relevant or proportionate to the determination of the issues before it. Nor did the Tribunal consider that disclosure was required to secure the just, expeditious and economical conduct of the proceedings.
