Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50082251
  • Date: 23 August 2006
  • Public Authority: Plymouth City Council
  • Summary: The request was for a full copy of a report into the performance of the child protection agencies following the death of a child from neglect. The Commissioner decided that although the Council was wrong to deem the request vexatious the information requested is exempt under section 36 (prejudice to the conduct of public affairs). Furthermore substantial parts of the report constituted exempt information under section 40 (personal information) and section 41 (information provided in confidence). Since the Commissioner was satisfied that the information was exempt he did not consider a number of other exemptions which the Council raised during the course of the investigation.
