Burke v Angus Council: SIC 11 Mar 2014

Adults with learning difficulties with unmet needs – On 1 March 2013, Mr Peter Burke asked Angus Council (the Council) for an anonymised list of adults with learning difficulties with unmet needs for both respite and residential care in the Carnoustie and Monifieth areas. The Council responded by withholding the information.
Following an investigation, the Commissioner found that the Council had been entitled to withhold the information: it was the personal data of other individuals and its disclosure would breach the first data protection principle.
