Freedom of Information requests

Exemptions and exceptions

Sometimes there will be exemptions under FOI or exceptions under EIR which will prevent us from disclosing the information in its entirety or in part.

There are 23 Sections of the Act that relate to many exemptions, some of which include, information that is commercially sensitive or confidential and subject to other legislation or already publicly available.

We will notify you in writing if your request for information falls under an exemption.

If your request is refused in whole or in part we will issue a refusal notice and advise you how to appeal. Refer to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) for further information.
