The complainant requested the name of an individual who had made a donation to Royston Town Council (the Council) in order to fund the development of a new cemetery. The Council withheld this information under the exemption provided by section 40(2) (personal information) of the FOIA. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Council cited section 40(2) correctly and so it was not obliged to disclose this information.
