The complainant requested various copies of Cabinet/Board Meeting minutes in respect of the proposed Wylfa Newydd nuclear power station project on Anglesey. The Welsh Government initially refused the request in its entirety relying on regulation 12(4)(e) of the EIR on the basis that the information involves the disclosure of internal communications, however, it subsequently disclosed full copies of two of the Board minutes and redacted copies of the remaining minutes. The Commissioner has considered the Welsh Government’s reliance on the exception cited and has concluded that it was entitled to rely on regulation 12(4)(e) of the EIR in respect of the remaining withheld information.
