  • Case Ref: FS50069257
  • Date: 7 November 2005
  • Public Authority: York Hospitals NHS Trust
  • Summary: The complainant requested information relating to a particular workplace grievance procedure. The request was refused under section 40 (personal information).

Therefore the exemption provided by section 40(2) was applicable.
