| quote  = The public interest test is similar to that in section 2(1)(b) of the FOISA. Under the EIRs, a Scottish public authority may only refuse to make environmental information available if the public interest in making it available is outweighed by that in maintaining the relevant exception.
http://grig2259.101freehost.com/watch-big-brother-10-episode-5.html watch full episode of big brother 9
+
However, regulation 10(2)(b) builds in a presumption in favour of disclosure which means that where arguments are evenly balanced for withholding and disclosing the information, the information must be disclosed.

Public Interest Test

Many of the exemptions that exist in the laws are "qualified exemptions". These are subject to a "public interest test" which is designed to weigh up and compare the arguments in favour of giving out information against those arguments against.

The other kind of exemptions are known as "absolute exemptions".

See also: Winning the Public Interest Argument.

United Kingdom FOIA guidelines

  • Information that is of "Public Interest", means that it is in the something which serves the interests of the public, not something that might be interesting!
  • The public authority has to decide whether in any particular case it serves the interests of the public better to withhold or to disclose information.
  • The starting point should always be of disclosure to avoid bias
  • They should list all the points in favour of disclosure
  • They should then list all the points against disclosure
  • They should then say where the overall balance lies and give reasons as to why.

Scottish FOISA guidelines

Paraphrased from the SIC guidance:

  • The public interest is not defined in FOISA but has been described as "something which is of serious concern and benefit to the public"
  • The "public" in this context does not necessarily mean the entire population. It might relate to a relatively localised public (e.g. a small community or interest group) or to the wider public at large.
  • The Section 60 Code of Practice gives advice to public authorities on applying the test
  • The Section 60 Code notes that the following factors should not be taken into account when applying the public interest test.
  • possible embarrassment of government or other public authority officials;
  • the seniority of persons involved in the subject matter;
  • the risk of the applicant misinterpreting the information.
  • possible loss of confidence in government or other public authority
  • The complexity of the information is not a valid reason for withholding information

EIR guidelines

tbc

EIR Scotland guidelines

The public interest test is similar to that in section 2(1)(b) of the FOISA. Under the EIRs, a Scottish public authority may only refuse to make environmental information available if the public interest in making it available is outweighed by that in maintaining the relevant exception.

However, regulation 10(2)(b) builds in a presumption in favour of disclosure which means that where arguments are evenly balanced for withholding and disclosing the information, the information must be disclosed.

Scottish Information Commissioner guidance.

Freedom of Information Act 2000 - What the law says

2 Effect of the exemptions in Part II
(1) Where any provision of Part II states that the duty to confirm or deny does not arise in relation to any information, the effect of the provision is that where either—
(a) the provision confers absolute exemption, or
(b) in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the exclusion of the duty to confirm or deny outweighs the public interest in disclosing whether the public authority holds the information,

section 1(1)(a) does not apply.

(2) In respect of any information which is exempt information by virtue of any provision of Part II, section 1(1)(b) does not apply if or to the extent that—
(a) the information is exempt information by virtue of a provision conferring absolute exemption, or
(b) in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.
