Cardiff and Vale University Health Board (Decision Notice): ICO 14 Apr 2014

ICO The complainant requested the minutes of a professional strategy meeting that took place on 13 July 2011. Cardiff and Vale University Health Board (the Health Board) initially refused to confirm or deny whether it held the requested information by virtue of section 40(5). It later indicated that it was relying on section 40(2) as the basis to refuse to disclose the requested information. During the course of the Commissioner’s investigation, the Health Board also sought to rely on sections 31(1), 38(1) and 41(1) in relation to the requested information. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Health Board was entitled to rely on section 31(1)(g) with section 31(2)(j) to withhold the information and the public interest in favour of maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosure. The Commissioner does not require any steps to be taken.
