ICO The complainant has requested information about the minutes from the White Rose stakeholder meeting of 18 September 2015. The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) refused the request relying on regulation 12(4)(e) – disclosure of internal communications. Since requesting the information, Government matters which fell to be dealt with by DECC are now dealt with by the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) but for the purposes of this notice reference will be to DECC rather than BEIS. The Commissioner’s decision is that DECC has correctly relied on regulation 12(4)(e) to refuse the request and she does not require the public authority to take any further steps.
EIR 12(4)(e): Not upheld
