Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50122585
  • Date: 18 March 2008
  • Public Authority: Cumbria County Council
  • Summary: The complainant requested details surrounding the council’s decision to close a literacy centre in Carlisle. The council clarified that it held the information requested but that it was exempt from disclosure under the exemption in section 36 of the Act (prejudice to the effective conduct of public affairs). The Commissioner’s decision is that it was unreasonable for the council to apply the exemption to some information, and that the exemption is applicable to other information, but that the public interest in maintaining the exemption does not outweigh that in disclosing the information in this instance.
