Merseytravel (Decision Notice): ICO 22 May 2007

The complainant requested information about a specific loan. The public authority declined relying upon the sections 36 and 42 exemptions and in maintaining that in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the exemptions outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information. The Commissioner is satisfied that the public authority has applied the section 42 exemption and the public interest test correctly. An appeal was made to the Information Tribunal, who have ruled that the appeal should be allowed and the decision overturned.
