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 in disclosure;

• the legitimate interest can only 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 the individual’s privacy or other

rights and legitimate interests.
