Freedom of information requests

3. Declined requests for information

We will provide the requested information unless there is a good reason not to do so. For instance, your request might relate to someone else’s personal details, and the FOI Act lists any exemptions.

We must state why we have declined a request. You can ask for a reconsideration, and if rejected again, you can ask the Information Commissioner’s Office for a review.
The Information Commissioner’s Office is an independent body that enforces the FOI Act, the Data Protection Act, and the Environmental Information Regulations. To learn more, visit the Information Commissioner’s website.
