Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50119029
  • Date: 12 March 2008
  • Public Authority: House of Lords Appointments Commission
  • Summary: The complainant requested the minutes of meetings of the Commission and any papers distributed to Commission members. The Commission disclosed some information but withheld some under sections 36, 37, 40 and 42. The Commissioner investigated and found that sections 36 and 37 are engaged but that in respect of section 36 and 37 the public interest favours disclosure of the information. The Commissioner found that section 42 is engaged and the public interest favours maintaining the exemption; and that section 40 is not engaged. The Commissioner requires the public authority to disclose the information withheld under sections 36, 37 and 40 within 35 calendar days of this notice. This decision is currently under appeal to the Information Tribunal.
