The complainant has requested information regarding the socioeconomic and educational backgrounds of applicants to the Government’s Fast Track scheme. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Cabinet Office was entitled to redact part of the disclosed information under section 40(2) and is entitled to withhold some of the information under section 23 and 24 in the alternative. The Commissioner does find, however, that the Cabinet Office breached section 17(1) by not citing the exemption on which it was relying. The Commissioner does not require the Cabinet office to take any further steps to ensure compliance with the Act.
