Is there any information held by a government body which is not available?
Not all information is automatically made available when a FOI request is made. The Freedom of Information Act sets out a number of situations in which an agency may refuse a person access to the documents they have requested. The main situations are requests for documents
- which affect the personal affairs of another person;
- which are commercially confidential;
- which would undermine law enforcement; or
- which contain information supplied in confidence.
