Validity of freedom of information requests: Glasgow City Council v Scottish Information Commissioner

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    Examines the Inner House judgment in Glasgow City Council v Scottish Information Commissioner on whether the local authority had been entitled to refuse freedom of information requests on the grounds that: (1) the requested information was publicly available in the form of Property Enquiry Certificates (PECs), albeit at a price; and (2) free disclosure of the information would undermine the market for PECs, substantially prejudicing the authority's commercial interests within the meaning of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 s.33. © 2011 Sweet & Maxwell
