Our decision for FOI 2016-40. Section 36 (2) (b) and (c) was challenged by the requester. Following an internal review the requester complained to the Information Commissioner.

The Information Commissioner’s Office reviewed the request and produced their determination (Reference: FS50689175).

In response to their determination we have decided in the interest of transparency that we will publish the ICO determination as well as the minutes of the Stakeholder Working and Steering Groups.

The ICO determination and as well as the minutes have been redacted by virtue of Section 40 of the Freedom of Information Act – Personal Information. This means all personal information/ identifiers related to third parties have been removed.
