The complainant has requested copies of emails sent or received by the directors of The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust (the ‘Trust’) containing certain key words during a specified time frame. The Trust refused to provide the emails under section 36 and section 42 of the FOIA with the exception of one email. Later on the Trust also cited section 40(2). The Commissioner’s decision is that the Trust has cited section 36 appropriately and therefore the Trust need take no further steps.
