Patterson v South Lanarkshire Council: SIC 24 Jun 2013

On 2 August 2012, Mr Patterson asked South Lanarkshire Council (the Council) for information about a land transfer. The Council disclosed certain information, while arguing that other information was publicly available through the Land Register and therefore exempt under section 25 of FOISA.
Following an investigation, the Commissioner accepted the Council’s position and found that it held no further information which was not exempt under section 25.
