Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50204107
  • Date: 1 March 2010
  • Public Authority: Department for Communities and Local Government
  • Summary: The complainant requested that the public authority provide her with the information generated by a complaint, regarding the development of the “Home Information Pack" legislation, made previously to the National Audit Office by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. The public authority declined to release the information it held by relying on section 36(2)(b)(i) and (ii) and (c) of the Act. The Commissioner finds that section 36(2)(b)(i) and (ii) are engaged and that the public interest in favour of maintaining the exemptions does outweigh the public interest in disclosure. The Commissioner therefore did not go on to consider the applicability of section 36(2)(c).
