Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of L) v COMMISSIONER OF POLICE OF THE METROPOLIS (2009)

PUBLISHED October 29, 2009

[2009] UKSC 3

The Police Act 1997 s.115(7) was not incompatible with the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 art.8 as long as the words "ought to be included" were given their full weight, so that in exercising his discretion as to what information ought to be included in an enhanced criminal record certificate the chief police officer gave proper consideration to the applicant's right to respect for his private life.
