Furthermore, guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office is a as follows:
The presumption is in favour of protecting privacy, so the release of personal information will only be fair if there is a genuine reason to disclose. This involves a three-stage test. A public authority will generally have to satisfy itself that:
There is a legitimate interest can be met, or fully met, by the disclosure of information which identifies individuals (i.e the disclosure is necessary to that purpose); and, the disclosure would not involve unwarranted detriment to individual’s privacy or other rights and legitimate interests.
If you have any queries about this freedom of information request, please contact us. Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.
