The complainant has requested the trust to disclose whether the named individuals within a list he provided had first aid certificates on the date of each trip that was detailed in the list. He also asked for the date of when each first aid certificate had been obtained, when it was due to expire and to be provided with a copy of each certificate. The trust refused to disclose the information citing section 40(2) of the FOIA. It also stated that section 14(2) of the FOIA applied. The Commissioner’s decision is that section 14(2) of the FOIA does not apply. However, she has decided that the trust is entitled to refuse to disclose the requested information under section 40(2) of the FOIA. The Commissioner has found the trust in breach of section 10 of the FOIA, as it failed to respond to the complainant’s request within 20 working days of receipt. The Commissioner does not require any further action to be taken.
