  • Case Ref: FS50126145
  • Date: 28 March 2007
  • Public Authority: Royal Mail

The Commissioner has concluded that Royal Mail correctly applied this exemption. He considers the exemption to be engaged in respect of all the requested information with the public interest favouring the maintenance of the exemption. An appeal was made to the Information Tribunal but the Tribunal has ruled on this appeal and dismissed the appeal.
