Bangor University (Decision Notice): ICO 19 Apr 2012

The complainant requested information which was used to produce a particular report entitled ‘Alcohol Involved Deaths’. Bangor University refused to provide the information on the basis that it had been provided to it in confidence and it was therefore exempt under section 41(1) of the FOIA. The Commissioner’s decision is that the University correctly relied on section 41 of the FOIA for the non disclosure of the requested information. The Commissioner has, however, identified some procedural issues surrounding the University’s handling of the request. The Commissioner requires no further action to be taken. Information Tribunal appeal number EA/2012/0118 withdrawn.
Section of Act/EIR and Finding: FOI 10 – Complaint Upheld, FOI 41 – Complaint Not upheld
